I was thinking of swapping my worn gear shift knob on my '94 S420 for a nice Zebrano Wood knob. Before I go and get one, Can anyone tell me definitively how to remove and replace it? I've checked the past threads here, and everyone seems to have different opinions or thoughts on how they THINK to do it, not HOW they did it (if they did).
Most say to put the gear selector into N or D, then press down and turn counter-clockwise and the knob will come off of the shaft, but all the replacements I've seen have a shaft attached, leading me to believe it needs to be removed lower down, requiring removing the console? Some of the aftermarket companies have even told me I may need to purchase an adapter for the shaft if produced before or after certain dates.
Has anyone done this and can tell me for sure how it's done?
