      Angry Need help!

      Bought a short throw shifter and new shift knob, I cannot figure out how to remove the reverse ring to completely uninstall the bottom of the shift knob
      2016 Dart GT manual transmission.
      Currently sitting in my car frustrated with my center console in a million pieces. If anyone can point me to a video that would be great!

      21 - Transmission and Transfer Case / Manual, C635 / KNOB, Gearshift / Removal

      REMOVAL

      NOTE: The upper hemisphere of the gearshift knob is fastened to the lower hemisphere with polyurethane adhesive. The upper hemisphere must be destroyed to remove it.

      1.•Using a 15 mm (5/8 in.) hole saw or drill bit, drill a hole (3) in the crown of the upper hemisphere of the gear shift knob (1) to gain access to an internal nut (2).
      •Alternate method: Using Channel-lock™ pliers, fracture the upper hemisphere and separate it from the gear shift knob lower hemisphere.

      2.Using a suitable vacuum cleaner or regulated 3.4 kPa (50 psi) shop air, clean the access hole of debris.

      3.Remove nut (2) holding the gear shift knob to the gear shift lever.

      4.Separate the gear shift knob from the gear shift lever.

      You're a life saver thank you so much! It turns out they put a ton of adhesive on both hemispheres... Good thing I bought a new knob too. Completely destroyed my stock one trying to get passed the glue...

      My shifter was glued to the stalk, probably the only reason I had hell with it.
      As for the reverse collar removal, I removed the O-Ring first, then I straightened out a paper clip and cut it into 4 prices. I used a flat head screwdriver driver to pry the 4 "lips" away from the bevel in the stalk. After that I gave it a good tug and it slipped right off. I don't have pictures right now, but I did forget to install my shift let bushings while I was in so I'll take some while I'm back in there unless you get it straightened out by then.
