How To Remove Gearshift Knob On A 1995 To 2003 S10 With A 5 Speed Trans.

Posted in Shifters | Asked on Jul 2, 2010

I tried to twist it off without any luck.I wasn’t sure if there is a set screw that I haven’t seen,or if the knob was put on with threadlock at the factory.I would really like to replace it a new shift knob without breaking my truck.

    My nephew wanted to do the same thing on his ’91 1500 and the knob was integral with the shifter and the entire thing unscrewed from a stub at the bottom clear under the shifter boot. There may be an after market shifter that has no knob where a different one could be installed. Or another option would be measuring the diameter of the shaft, cutting it off and threading it to fit a knob or and adapter that would accept a knob.
