This is a how to remove shifter knob. As seen in the pictures my shifter knob is not attached to the boot. Keep in mind yours will. The reason mine is, I sold my console and shifter snap ring that attaches to the console, the buyer did not want the shift lever or knob so I cut the boot and removed the lever. You can still do this with the boot attached.
1. First with a dremel tool with the cut off wheel make one cut down the side and continue to the top and down the other side. Pull with pliers to remove the outer plastic that covers the knob.
2. Then make a cut with the same cut off wheel on the inner harder plastic interior knob.
3. Put a regular screwdriver end into the cut and twist to spread the cut open, once it cracks enough you can pull the knob right off.
4. Knob should pull off and you should have a shaft to insert into a new knob. Keep in mind the end is pretty wide and the new knob might need to be drilled out to fit. Since the new knob will be threaded and your lever is not just drill out the knob and glue it on to the shaft using some epoxy mix you can buy at autozone. Once I buy a knob I will finish this thread,
