they are screw on the way we do it at work is we cut a peice of drivebelt so it fits around bottom of gear knob then using multi-grips on that pieve of drivebelt loosen your gear knob (we use drive-belt as it grips onto the gear knob and does'nt damage it i hope this hepls you cheers

Stop being a sissy, grab the f**k and twist it! They undo anticlockwise IIRC.

why not get a tap and dye kit and put a new thread on there. I know thats all my brother in law did with his when he shortened his stick.

Or cut and weld the stick. Just cutting the top part off the thread wont shorten your stick because the gknob will screw down until it hits the unthreaded part - which will be within a few mm of where it screws to normally.
