Shift Knob Removal

Can anyone help with shift knob removal? I have tried to rotate it to remove it but to no avail. How do they come off?

It slides off. There is a compression sleeve inside the knob and sometimes it's tough to break free. Some have used a piece of wood as a drift and tapped the bottom of the knob until it slides off.

What year is your car?

If it's '86 and older it has a crush sleeve that is held on by pressure:


If it's '87-'89 then there is a screw under the cap that holds it on:

I had the same problem and then lost motivation to take it off, so I left it alone. I will try again after being armed with this info
