Jeep gear shift knob

Question

 

Does anyone know how to take the gear shift knob off of a ’98 Jeep Cherokee. The shop manual says to just pull it off. Others say to twist it off. Nothing seems to work. I bought it used and it seems that the previous owner also tried to pry it off and damaged it. (One of the reasons I want to replace it) I found some really cool looking ones at AutoZone.

 

Answer

 

this one is too easy.here is the trick turn the key on,shift it all the way down to 1st,grab the handle w/ both hads and pull it hard and put some of you body weight into it.just pull it hard as you can.do not twist you will break something.go ahead and try it.
