Hey everyone! Just picked up a 2016 Cruze LS manual transmission. And honestly I have never thought about changing the shift knob. But looking at these after market okay I kinda wanna do it. Is there any tips or tricks I can use to take it off? I tried turning counter clockwise and it didn’t budge. And also wanted to put a short throw shifter in. Would it be possible with having to hold a button to put it in reverse?

Some shift knobs (like on my 2012 ECO) just pull off, others (like the verano shifter) have a locking collar hidden under the shift boot. Reverse lockout is a function of the shifter assembly itself and therefor changing shifters would most likely get rid of that safety feature. I would suggest getting short throw linkage instead of a true short shifter, like these from 4htech sold by bnr

I have the f40 version on my 2.0T swapped Cruze and I love it.

If i have the non-turbo 1.4 would i still use the first one?
