Effing shift knob
This thing will not budge, anyone know any tricks to make it come loose. It feels like nissan put loctite in these damn things!!

But I don't want to damage the knob

do you still need it. if not vice grips should work. might even try putting a thick rag or towel around it so the damage is minimal if you still need it

No loctite, just glue. I've heard a towel and a vice are one way some people go about it, but I don't think there's a way that will guarantee your knob survives.

Edit: I need to learn to type faster...

a was a little late but i got mine off with the towel and vice grips trick with no damage just be careful if you try it not to squeeze the crap out of it

Yeah I tried a vice but got scared of damaging it, think ima have to steal one from the junk yards ahhhhh

I used a shamwow and channel locks. Shamwow kept from scratching the knob and it came off with a bunch of force.

stop being a bitch and muscle that thing off with big channel locks or a big as wrench
