    I'm fixing my floor problems, but can egt the shifter bezel off without removing the knob. the knob just spins, but doesn't unscrew. How do I get it off without messing it up?

    On mine I have a nut that is tucked under the shift knob. I think it's a 1/2 inch or 9/16. Don't really remember

    There is something in there, but I can't tell. I don't think its a nut, I don't know what it is.

    I replaced mine with a soccer ball one...it has a small flat head screw in the back of it that had to be removed first before I got it off. It was a pain too since the screw head was stripped!

    If it is stock the knob is more than likely spinning on the threaded metal part. My 89 did this. I took vice grips and wraped electrical tape around the jaws, this got it off. They don't need to be to tight.
