Seen a few posts on this matter, some say twist and others say pull.

No matter what I do, it just doesn't come off.. Anyone ever had that problem when it was really really tight? And how did you fix it ? Is it possible someone's super glued it down cause it really won't come off. Anyone got any clues on what I can do?

Thank you.

On such an old car it may well be a replacement.. thats been glued in place


My nephews 16v had obviously had it removed to change the gaiter.. now it came off on most 2nd and 4th selections :eek:

I used Epoxy.. : SOLID :)

you may want to cut the knob down the sides and SPLIT it... if you have a replacement

Thank you to everyone whose responded, I will try a hair dryer or something with heat. If that does not work, I will go with the pliers idea and hammer it out.
