I just got my TT short shifter. The install is simple but I am having trouble pulling the stock shifter off. I read a couple DIYs they all said to wiggle it gently. I tried and still it wouldn't budge. Does anyone have any tips? Maybe there is a trick to it. Thanks for your help.

Re: TT short shifter (bootymac)

Stick a 14mm deep socket underneath the shifter (you never use it anyway) to brace the part and keep it from moving. Put a 10mm (I think it was a 10mm I used, maybe smaller) socket over the top of the threaded shaft to protect it. Lightly tap the top of the socket on the shaft with a hammer and it will work right out with no hassle. Install the TT shifter and enjoy.
