it has splines it has to pull off.. you need it to get hot.. then pull really really hard, then maybe it will come off, or break it..

^^What Zach said. They don't screw off. They are mounted to splines, so up and down grooves, and attached using some crazy bad *** glue. some people actually came off on them while shifting in the summertime. lol. What are you trying to accomplish? put on a ricer shift ****?

Not sure what the connector is on yours but the ones I've seen needed to be drilled out a little more then used epoxy to hold it on the shifter.

I did that after I bought my 2000. The damn thing kept coming off when I shifted gears It came with screws, but I ended up gorilla glueing it on. The 8 ball **** was kinda cool though, the hurst was even better.
