Q: Removing the Shift Knob on a 1969 3-Speed
How do you remove the shift knob on a 1969 3 speed?
I need to pull the console pannel so that I can do some refurbishing and I can’t figure out how to pull the knob off. I tried to spin it but it won’t budge and I don’t want to bust it. It has the push button with the bird in the middle.
A: To remove the shifter knob, first remove the push button (use a rag to protect it and and plyers to pull it); under the knob, around the shaft is a small snap ring, use expanding snap ring plyers. After you remove the snap ring, the knob should come off.
