It just unscrews like a manual knob. I haven't replaced mine, but my son has occupied himself with taking mine off before.

Ive replaced mine with a leather/grey wood grain knob from a lexus. The previous poster is correct. Just unscrew it by hand.

I replaced mine with a twm knob I've used in my past two (manual) cars. I had to get a new insert (universal knob) but that was just a few bucks.

Totally worth it. Love the look and feel.

fyi, get the smallest insert they carry is you go this route.

I have this knob: http://www.twmshiftknobs.com/shiftkn...hiftknobs.html

I've been tempted to try out one of these ever since I had a Jeep Wrangler...but I never got around to buying one. I wonder if they would fit on the Auto shifter. I'll have to do some research.

I really like the feel/look of the stock one, then again I haven't owned a manual car.
