thinking of getting the driver gear aluminium shift knob, how easy/hard is it to replace, don't want to break any clips, but would rather do it myself.

there is a one time use brass clip that holds the stock one in place. you will have to destroy that to get it off. Then, just use a hose clamp in its place. Its easy

you don't even need a hose clamp, the driver gear aluminum knob uses set screws to attach to the shift arm, incredibly easy to change -- i have the knob you're talking about

so how do you remove the boot? is there a clip you have to push first? or does it just pull up?
