Hello,

Does anyone know how to remove the shift knob on a C230K (Coupe)?
Its a manual, lift up reverse, 6-speed. Its the 2003 Model

My one is all scratched up by the previous owner, and I'd like to replace it.

When I lifted up the shift 'boot' cover, I can see there appears to be a black plastic 'screw' at the base of the shift knob, but it seemed quite tough (I didnt want to force it without knowing more). Also the shift stick itself can be rotated / pivoted through continuous 360 degrees.

If anyone has any experience in replacing them, please let me know!

Thanks,

DM

If you have the boot pulled up, then simply turn that black knob on the bottom counterclockwise when looking at it from above. Turn it about 1/4 turn. Once it's loose, just yank the knob off. If your able to turn the knob 360 degrees with it on the shifter, then the knob is pretty much chewed up inside.
