I tried to purchase a knob only and was >told that it was for all purposes it is integral with the shaft. I >bought a knob and attached shaft and it came with a lovely leather >boot.(Mine is "corrugated" rubber.). A plastic tube is attached to the >knob. This tube has three slots in the end away from the knob which >appear to hsave no purpose at all > >On raising the boot on the shifter of my car I can see a polished >steel shaft which is within the plastic tube and at its lower end >merges with a partly visible metal sphere which has groves machined >into it approximately radially. The sphere appears, to this untrained >eye, to be the top end of the shifting linkakage. > >My problem is; how do I get the knob and platic tube assmbly offof the >steelshaft which I think engages with the linkage?
