knob

I have a vague recolection of a post some months ago re: removing the shift knob. I believe you have to push down quite hard before you turn the knob, and it must be in the correct gear. Can't remember which thow.

w140 shift knob problem

i appreciate everyones help and answers. but after trying countless time to turn it, pushing down with all my weight, putting it in 2nd gear as well as all the others, i cant seem to get it off. i turned so hard that the leather is coming off teh shift knob, whereas i am under the impression that the whole shifter has to come off. please, if anyone has any feedback on this issue, it would be greatly appreciated. thanks[?][?][8]
