Attempt to have the knob come off toward your stomach or chest area because when it releases it will have the force of you pulling along with the knobs weight and your arms. If it's aligned to release toward your head you will be sorry!!! Don't let it hit your face...
If the car is a late model and has a lighted emblem you will have two wires that are attached to the knob. Be careful when the knob releases that you don't break these wires. Get your body close to the shifter so the release (when it happens) is a short distance into your stomach.
Oh, don't allow the release to be too low either...you want to protect the family jewels! If you're going to err, it's better to have a black eye than a black .....
Anybody know how to get the stock M3 shift knob off so I can install the rob knob...and that goes for the stock e-brake handle as well. Thanks
