Default 2001 C70 Manual Shift Knob Removal

And the answer is?

How do you get the damn thing off?

Ya saw that as well as every other vid and post I could find out there.

In that vid he is standing in his living room talking about how he ****ed one up. Later in the vid he has the whole shift mechanism out of the car and in a vice or something.

I've heard the "just pull it off" a couple of times, not looking to break the stupid thing.

Perhaps Jack - if you don't have actual, real life experience removing one yourself you can be a quiet observer for once and learn something rather than an active participant? (though I appreciate that you were trying to be helpful).

Ya I like his videos, he does a good service.

So what - you just pull it straight up and it comes off? Isn't the boot connected?

I think Volvo had a special tool for these like what ford uses to disconnect fuel filters/lines

In the video he has it off because he explains that if you just pull it you’ll likely break the white plastic piece t bottom of shifter

I always did it off car but maybe hold rod with vice grips while you tapie tap tap with your two other hands wrench at bottom of knob


Btw did you ever source a 901?

If it's anything like the automatic shift knob in these cars it gets pulled up and off. The auto ones do contain a switch mechanism so I imagine they're even more fragile.

According to this you're supposed to cut the bottom of the knob off to remove it.

You have a choice of new knobs.

Thanks for posting that really appreciate it. The shifter looks different though. Have to take a look today.

Actually the more I look at that page the less it looks like a 2001 C70, nothing on that console (including the shifter) look the same. Maybe the 800 series shifter removal is the same?

Probably not much help, but I removed mine from a 98 s70 I had. It was definitely tight as heck, but with twisting and pulling it finally came off. Good luck

This is what VIDA says on the subject.

Appreciate it - that's pretty much the same link but do appreciate you posting the image.

I'm still a bit confused. To remove the gear shift knob you have to cut away the leather cover? How do you replace it without it looking like crap?

I wondered that myself but it's not discussed in VIDA.

And that manual is referencing an entirely different console and shifter. Not even remotely close to the 2001 C70.
