The knob itself is just sort of a "cover" for a large off white plastic piece. I know cause I ripped it off shifting into third once. Its just glued on, but you still have the large plastic piece to take care of.
how does one just "rip off" a shifter knob? I think there something else to that story you're not sharing - I just can't see how you could be driving along and "off goes" the shifter knob. I mean - even old VW's don't do that!! :lol:
