When test driving I thought the knob was ok. Now I don't really like it that much. So question is should I get the dealer to replace it or is instillation easy enough I could do it by myself?
I found this part was easy -- instead of prying where you believe the clips are, I gently but firmly tugged upward at the edge that meets the cupholder/tray cover. Those two clips pop up first, and if you continue tugging, the rest will pop.redline said:I found the hardest part of the install is to find exact location of the six clips that hold the plastic console trim in place. because I feared scratching the console by using a flat screwdriver, I used a credit card to wedge apart the trim enough to find the clips. I then used the screwdriver to pry at the clips.
Redline's right -- it's officially known as an aluminum knob.one other thing, people keep referring to the "titanium" shift knob. the one sold by Acura is aluminum.
This only works with some of the knobs, as it requires the threads inside the knob to be drilled so that the knob shift pattern is right-side up when it reaches bottom on the shaft.I installed mine allowing the "gap" but not using the tightening nut so that I could screw it down further (about a half inch more). this results in a somewhat shorter throw which is also desireable.
