Cut it off and fit your new one to the remaining part of the shaft = short throw shifter! laugh

twist it anti clockwise,failing that pull really hard.failing that buy a haynes,or just bodge by sawing the shaft just under the knob and sticking ur new knob on the remainder of the shaft. Shortens ur throw and makes ur gaitor scrunch up like a sports car

what,sawing the knob. Done it on both my cars mate and it make the change feel so much better as well as making the gearstick look more sporty by lowering it into the centre console. If ur gearknob comes up out of the floor tho and not thru a centre console it might make it look silly. Got any pics of it?

Shortens your throw? It doesnt at all it only makes the gearstick shorter, a common misconception about 'short shifters' is exactly that, you would pay 200 for one knowing you could cut your old one in half - Short Shifters change the angle/throw of the stick by altering the leverage point

It DOES shorten the throw.

Short shifters are longer UNDER the leverage point to shorten the throw,wheras DIY ones are shorter above the point of leverage.

dont cut it then. as you will have to relocate the collor for the lift up and can become messy if you dont know what your doing. get a hacksaw and cut the old knob of. then it should pull away if you cut right down the side of it.
