i bought a carbon manual gear knob - but the original has its leather as one continuous piece from the knob right down into the gaiter and it'd mean cutting the leather............ so i'll leave it......... and i've sent the gear knob back........
Bumping this thread since I'm planning on changing out the shift knob. I'm confused though... some folks here say simply to pull up on the knob (as is the case with the E46's), however ibanezking mentions the one continuous piece of leather... so do I need to cut the leather then pull on the knob?
How does the leather connect to the knob?
