    Have you tried holding the boot near the top firmly while spinning the knob off? I haven't removed mine yet, but that's how most of them are.
    2009 DGM WRX 5-door w/ STI short shifter. Stock...for now.

    you have to pull the boot down and then it just unscrews.

    the knob has a retainer kind of thing that holds the top of the boot, just push it off and unscrew the knob

    I'm trying to remove the stock shift knob on 04 WRX but it seems like it wont turn. I'm afraid not to break anything.
    My question is - That's how you remove the shift knob right? it unscrews.
    Is there anything I have to do before I unscrew it other than remove the boot?
    Thanks
