Gear Shift Knob Removal

Does the gear shift knob just unscrew on a 2012 GT premium manual with the 401A interior? I need to remove the console and the knob is really tight if it does unscrew. I don't want to force it since I have had the car for only about 48 hours

Go to the store and purchase a bottle of MAN shower gel........... go home and take a shower and use the MAN shower gel. Get dressed and go outside and crank that baby off.

Just playin' .... seriously but some *** behind it and it will unscrew.... just remember... lefty loosey ... righty tighty.

Sometimes you have to pull the leather shift boot cover down/ off before you can unscrew it.

Well I manned up and got it done. Thanks for the helpful advice. It seems the thing that spooked me is the rubber plug up in the shift handle that provides resistance to keep it from unscrewing too easily.

Thanks again.

Good thing you figured it out, I was gonna tell you to rub some kibble on the knob and then gnaw on it for like 38 minutes. 68% of the time, it works every time!
