Thanks for the correction. They're cheaper. Take a whack at it.

Any ideas on how to remove in a Carrera with the leather boot? There is no room between the leather boot and the knob to fit a wrench. I could get a wrench under the ball part of the knob but I feel this will 100% damage the knob by scoring or denting it.

Could also be the dealer had NOS on the shelf.

I do not disbelieve in anything. I start from the premise that everything is true until proved false. Everything is possible.

87 and up are. 86 and below by simply massive amounts of friction.

Rubber strap wrench works great. Plenty of leverage, no bludgeoning with hammers and wrenches. No damage to knob

This is the traditional method:

1. Get an ice pack from the freezer before starting.
2. Try to position yourself directly over the shifter.
3. Pull up on the shift knob with both hands, as hard as you can. When you have exerted your maximum force on the knob, it will release easily.
4. Apply ice pack to whatever part of your face you just whacked with the shift knob.

It won't come off even hitting/chiseling it?!
Well, probably a PO has epoxied/glued it.
Wouldn't the first time, that a PO chose this "quick" method instead of using a new chrush ring.

If you do not want to destroy it, I recommend you take the whole lever unit off the tunnel, place it on a bench upside down, dribble some glue solvent inside and keep trying knocking it off.

I got the new boot and I’m willing to take the whole thing out.
I do have a feeling it is glued.

shift knob removal

Hi , it will come off, even if is glued, .
Do as John Walker said ,but try this while doing it.
You have to have the best tools and Chanel pliers are the best there is
buy 12 inch pair you will never regret it, place a old piece of leather around
the shift knob at the fattest part of the knob, rough side of leather to the knob,
now you still might mark the knob a little but most times with leather it wont mark,
now adjust the chanels to the correct gap,and give it all you got counter clockwise
incase its threaded,it will be off first go.
