Default Ford Ranger shift knob removal


I have a 2005 Ranger and this morning I was looking at how to remove
the 5 speed shift knob, but was not able to figure it out. I want to
add a cue ball like I have on my Mustang.

Turn it counter clockwise. It should screw off.

No luck last night. Both my Brother and I could not get it to move.

Well, you may want to check around and make sure the thread size and
pitch is the same before going too far to get it off. If I recall
correctly, getting one made for a mustang to fit on something else
isn't always automatic.

Those are often put on at the factory with a loc-tite type product.
Is there any sign of flats to get a wrench on?

Did not see a spot to put a wrench on. Had a buddy look at it today
and he is very good with fixing his own cars and well as the heavy
equiptment he operates and he was stumped. Was not going to use the
same one that my Hurst shifter in my Mustang has. But do want a cue
ball type.

Grab it as tightly as you can and pull straight up -- it's not screwed
on -- the end of the gear shift stick has grooves cut into it --
there's a metal insert in the knob with matching grooves -- just pull
it straight up and off.

Cursing may help.

I have a 2001 Ranger Edge and this post is correct. Mine just came off - you
may want to take the shift pattern off the top just to make sure there is
not a screw in the center.
