Hi all, 

Bought a shift knob yesterday and was just wondering the best way to install it. I know of the double vice grip method but has anyone actually broken anything from just twisting it off without using them? Purely asking as I dont have vice grips on hand at the moment, and people seemed to have gotten away with just twisting it.

Theres no knob I I haven't been able to pull off with two hands and a bit of spit. Start slow then build up speed. You can do it.

anyone looking on how to remove a manual shift knob from a v36. 
I just removed mine with a microfibre cloth, a snatch strap and a spanner (closed end)

wrapped cloth around the knob, then strap, tighten the strap in the same direction as removal, wind the strap around a couple of times.

thread through the closed end of the spanner  then wind tight around the rest of the knob.

use the spanner as a lever to wind off the gear knob. It was on really f!#%’n tight!

no damage at all to the knob.

see pics.
