My shit\ft knob keeps pulling off. Its not secured, and when i shift hard the knob flies off, then im stuck at shift point and no knob. you know my delima. IM just trying to see if i can t do something to keep the stock knob for now.
I would think that if you wrap electrical tape around the lever it would tighten up the connection with the knob.. ghetto yes, but for a quick fix that isn't permanent should do the trick. If not dab some superglue on that bastard
Mine does the same thing, but in reality if you're pulling the shift knob off while shifting you are shifting wrong! They teach you this in racing school and you are not supposed to pull the shifter upwards when you shift but more linear like straight back. Practice doing this and you will be a better shifter. And the reason the knob is coming off is the plastic clip is broken, as long as I shift correctly I don't have this problem so I've been putting off getting a new shifter for a while

Hey Silverstreak, lets start up a Racing School thread, seriously, you can post what you know able correct ways to drive and incorrect ways and everyone else can post, this would be very interesting and everyone here could benefit from reading it.
.....about the shifter, if the knob is somewhat tight when you put it on,you could try putting some lock-tight in the knob and holding ti down tight for like a minute or two until the lock-tight sets up, then let it sit over night to cure out and it should work. This is just an idea. Crazy glue would also work, but (however you spell it) apoxy glue would be best.
