You can use pushon style knobs on threaded shifters


Recommended Posts

Well I got a push on style knob for an M. I have a threaded style shift rod. If you push and turn you can actually thread the push on style knob right onto the threaded shifter. Once on it is solid. I was able to go about 5 compete turns. I took it off then put it back on to be sure. Just a great wat to enjoy a much better selection of stock BMW shifter knobs.

One way to make it stay, but also allow it to be removed without prying, is to make your own threads. You do this by partially filling the knob hole with liquid steel. It has the consistency of modeling clay before it sets. Then you wrap the shifter threads with Teflon tape. This is to prevent the liquid steel from adhering to the shift rod. Push the knob on securely and let it set. The liquid steel bonds to the inside of the knob and will have the threaded liquid steel insert mated to it.
