    Newbie with Dumba*^ question - shift knob change!

    Not having much look on powertrain forum - I suspect they have more technical things on their minds. So I'll try this repost here...

    Hi all,

    Not specifically a WRX question but I suspect someone can help....

    The wife recently chose an 05 Legacy GT over just about everything else in the mid size sporty market under $50K. She really likes the car. I haven't driven it too much yet but I'm quite impressed too.

    She liked the look of the Momo shift knob in the brochure so I bought her one as a surprise Bday present. The instructions for putting it on look pretty simple.

    BUT....

    How the heck do you get the old (manual 5sp) shift knob off? Other times I've had to remove shift levers for some reason or another the knobs just screwed off - but this one unscrews the whol lever if I try. The collar doesn't seem to be split or fastened with screws and at first timid try I couldn't peel off the skirt from the collar to see if there were screws underneath. So rather than damage it with my mechanical incompetence (which is prodigious ) I thought I'd find a Subaru enthusiasts forum and ask....

    So any ideas? Thanks!

    Have a peek over at www.legacygt.com. There is a "how to" forum for DIY modifications. I'm sure you'll find it in there somewhere. I've had my whole shifter out and in pieces, but I never took the knob off the shift arm so I can't help you there. Good luck!
