Anybody have any ideas on how exactly to remove the shift knob? Just twist off? What about the boot? I've tried giving it some pressure and twisting but didn't really seem to budge so I didn't want to force it.

Try owners manual DVD, also try calling the service department, they would know best

It's not in the 2016 - CIVIC - OWNER'S MANUAL on Honda's site. Like he said ^ best to call the service department or ask your go to garage guy to see if they have any idea on how to take it off.

If you pull the boot down, you will see some plastic tips (they are white). Take a flat head and push it in and the boot should come off. The shift knob has some plastic adapter to hold the boot up.

The real question is getting the proper adapter so we can put custom ones in .

any update on changing the shift knob?
i would love to know how please!
:)
all you have to do is pull the boot off and unscrew the knob. the boot is basically tightened with a twistie tie which is why it's so tight. but just gotta yank it down. i replaced it with a razo shiftknob but there's no adapter piece between my knob to the boot so it looks a bit ugly, which is why i switched back. i actually like the look of the stock shiftknob. just wish it was a bit heavier!

In my EX-T I had to pinch the top of the boot (from the sides) and pull it down, as it's clipped to the knob, then the knob twisted off. Holding off on swapping out the knob until I can figure out what I want to do with the plastic clip on top of the boot.

okay!pretty easy...so how does it look with a aftermarket shift knob?any pics?
i managed to pinch both sides of the clip and remove just the stock shiftknob so I can retain the silver connector piece. looks much better. threw my Razo shiftknob back on cause I miss the weight of this knob.

same to you brother! aegean blue ftw! :)

and i'd say this sits pretty much at the same height. maybe even slightly lower because the stock shift knob was taller whereas this is just a weighted ball.

what kinda knobs were you looking at?
