Yes I did a search already

06 Aero 6speed manual.

How do I get the shifter off without hacking it up. I redid the leather and cannot get it back on properly without removing the shifter first.

Thanks

specifically how to remove the GEAR KNOB

The leather came undone. To tuck it back under and round the knob I need to remove the knob.

Sorry for not being clear

For anyone who may come into this thread now. I am in no way patient, so I just tried to stuff the leather back up in where I thought it belonged. Anyways, I ended up cutting the original piece to "make it fit." I had it 90% tucked in and then noticed a small plastic ring was sliding out the bottom. Pulled on it gently and it fell out. This is what holds the leather in place-tucked in on the bottom.

Needless to say...and hour and a half later I have a piece of leather that doesn't fit, and now found the EASY WAY to tuck the leather back in.

So as an update tomorrow I will take pictures just in-case anyone wants to replace the leather on their shift knob. I know it is typical to wear out. Instead of destroying your gear lever removing it-there are alternatives to make it custom.

I'm running to the fabric store tomorrow to see what kind of leather patterns they have. I'll keep this up to date when I can
