    The leather on my shifter is coming off so it's time to swap it for an aftermarket knob. Any guides on how this is done? I've never taken one off, can't really see a way to remove it....

    Yup...Automatics can get trickier cause they have the lock button in there and stuff...they have a retainer pin usually.

    But I'm pretty sure the 6spd just un screws.
