Re: changing gear knob on golf? (gasman007)

pull up the trim around the base of the shifter boot, it should pop up easily. Then pull the boot above the shifter knob, you will see a metal clamp that holds the knob on, cut it. now your old knob is off.

what he said above.
You'll need to cut the shifter rod for a nicer look...or at least i had to.
The stock height with Momo knobs look funny bcuz it sits too high even at the lowest installation point. Also, u might want to get the boot adapter if u want to reuse the stock boot without it looking ugly.
