Re: 2003 Ranger Shift Knob

there is a screw on the back/side of the shifter that is hidden under the vinyl. you will need a small allen wrrench to remove it. You need to have this off prior to unscrewing it.

Hey, i removed the vinyl, but i don't see any set screw anywhere near the shift knob. Is it hidden somewhere or do i need to remove something else to get to it? thanks.

Re: 2003 Ranger Shift Knob

Sorry did not see the year listed. Yours is actually not set with a set screw. You can remove it on the newer models with just a good twist and yank. You will find it near impossible to reinstall properly. So if you are replacing the knob then you dont have to worry, but if you are not then you have been warned.
