I know this thread is super-old, but looking for suggestions/recommendations. I bought a new shift knob for my 06 TSX 6MT. I thought I could just unscrew the OEM shift knob to remove it, but it looks like there is a black locking nut under the knob. I'm guessing its gonna be something similar to when I replaced my shift knob in my Integra, where I have to loosen the lock nut in order to loosen the shift knob. My question is, what do you all recommend I use to loosen the locking nut without damaging or scratching it? I used some pliers with three or four strips of electrical tape on the teeth of the pliers on my lock nut for my Integra & it scratched it up pretty good, so I kinda wanna avoid doing the same for my TSX. Any recommendations or suggestions you all could offer for the locking nut, would be sincerely appreciated.
Thanks in advance guys!!
