MG MGF Technical - Removing gear knob
|A previous owner of my F has fitted an after-market gear knob (polished aluminium ball type) which isn't to my taste, so I want to refit the original which was supplied with the car. But I can't get the old one off. I thought it was just screwed on but I can only twist it a few degrees in each direction (which takes a great deal of force) before it goes tight again. Any suggestions for removing it?|
|Hi, is there a collar on the bottom of the gear as some aftermarket ones have which you unscrew and then the knob is held on with 3 grub screws which you just undo.|

|Nope, no collar, can't see any grub screws, guess they must have just used plenty of loctite on the thread. Will have to try getting some kind of tool onto it and twisting harder!|
|Protect the head and just get a good firm grip to twist.|
