It's not like they slathered a TON of glue all over the threads, probably more like a dab near the top. Like I said, once you 'crack/break' the bond of the adhesive, it'll just screw off. But Like I said, don't just twist on the knob to take it off, hold the shifter rod tightly with another pair of vice grips as well. Any maybe wrap a small piece of cloth around it too so you don't chew it up. Trust me, it's not as scary as it sounds.P-ten said:SERIOUSLY? They're glued and twisted on? Will I be in danger of breaking anything by twisting it off with vice grips? Thanx!
No damage other than a little indent? Then yup! You're a lucky one! lollittledog said:I used a pipe-wrench to take it off. I didn't wrap the knob but it left a little indent in the knob. But otherwise it only took 2 seconds to get it off. Maybe I'm lucky.
