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!!

When I installed my momo knob, I removed the lock nut from the TSX shifter (the little black nut under the shift knob) then I took the plastic spacer (looks like a little black cap) that came included with the momo knob and threaded it onto the shifter itself.
I screwed it all the way down until the top of the shifter was about to rip through the plastic cap. Then I slid the momo knob on over that. Then I wrapped some electrical tape around the metal shifter on the spot where the tiny allen screws at the bottom of the momo knob were going to make contact so they had something to dig into and stay put. it worked great.
Make sure you put the allen screw area cover on before you put the knob on... I forgot the 1st time.
Oh, another reason you may be having trouble is there are little metal "nubs" under the shift boot that prevent it from sliding down too much. That is probably why the momo looks high. I removed the part of the console with the boot, and used my dremel to grind the nubs down so the boot slid all the way down. Then the momo will have room to slide all the way down.

thank you for the reply.

is the retaining nut locknut (small black nut under factory shift knob)?
where is the spacer located? is it located under the shift boot?
