It is on a thread but really tight. Give it curry.

When we first got an assembly in we were wondering the same thing but got it off witha bit of brute force.

Re: BA XR Gear Knob

they should have used Loctite at the Sydney Motor Show... plenty of people worked out how to replace them there or should I say liberate them.

The DAM thing is refusing to come off. I have the Momo Gear Knob and need to put it on.
