Yep. The bolt on the shifter that stops the knob from screwing all the way on is stuck. It rotates fairly easily, but doesnt seem to bite onto the threads. Its like its been stripped into that spot and it wont unscrew!

Ive tried locking on it with a crescent wrench and pulling up as i twist and it wont budge. WHAT DO I DO?! I just got this brand new knob but it needs to be ajusted so the label is straight.

Oh knowledable ocho members..help a brotha! :vtec:

its about 3/4 of the way down. Ive tried to get it off before to change the shift boot but i said the hell with it and jus left the nut on and replaced the boot around it. Now i need to ajust the nut so my shifter sits so the gear numbers are horizontal

like, i twist on the new knob..twist...twist...and it stops with the #'s vertical. I wouldnt mind where its at now but the new knob isnt readable and looks stupid as hell since the numbers arent straight.

Trust me, ive used elbow grease...Ive used so much im afraid i might pull the damn stick out of the tranny! No bolt should be THIS hard to get off. It rotates just fine, but it wont bite on the threads above or below it. I just dont understand!
