OK, I'm sorry to start ANOTHER thread about this. I've a 2003 CTS with a manual transmission. I'm trying to replace a torn shifter boot and obviously need to remove the shifter knob. I cannot get this GD thing off! I've read all the varous instructions for removal: pull straight up, push forward while pulling up, pull back while pulling up. I'm a pretty strong fella too.
I'm about to start looking for a replacement before I cut this one off. Before I do that though, I figured I'd try one more hail mary and cry to the thread. Does anyone have any wisdom for me before I wreck this thing? Any way to attach a puller to this thing?
