they unscrew right? Does luke know if they are the same threads? Is the V2 countersunk?
I dont think they unscrew...I think there is a roll pin that holds it...I could be wrong though.
Love to have one in my ride, just dont want to be the guinea pig.

It should be an easy swap. There's a Torx set screw hidden behind the silver trim ring on the bottom of the STS shift knob- carefully push down on the ring with a flat plastic tool to disengage it, then remove the Torx screw and pull off the knob. Keep the trim ring, as it needs to be reused.

The Part# for the CTS-V knob is 25961838 (GM List is $81.07) and it comes without the trim ring (since the CTS has a leather boot instead of the exposed lever in the STS). You should just be able to drop the trim ring over the shift lever, pop on the new knob, tighten the Torx screw and then push the trim ring up until it snaps.

In the shifter or in the knob? With it in park does the knob wiggle or is it in the shifter itself?

its the shifter itself, has a little play in it.

in the grand scheme of things its very small compared to the rest of the problems.

Also whats the item # for the suede one!

I attempted to remove the chrome ring from the bottom of the shift knob and ended up putting little dents in it. I placed a flathead screwdriver with a wide head inbetween the wood trim and the chrome piece facing forward. I really tried to jam it in there and twist, but no go.

How are you guys getting it off? Should i just keep pushing forward until something pops (like a tab)? or does it does it require me to twist? Should i be applying pressure elsewhere?

TIA

Best Mod EVER!. Now of I could only go in reverse and get the STS dash "V" on my V2, I would be thrilled!
