      Alright, I need some help. I picked up a real nice wooden shift knob for my 2004 b5.5 passat. The knob is screw on but the stock setup uses a clip, or a metal ring. I took the clip component out of my stock one, and pretty much destroyed the stock knob. Any ideas on where to go next?

      If it was anything like mine that slid over the shifter and was clamped down with the pinched metal clamp, I took mine off kept the boot tapped/die the shifter itself screwed on my new knob no issues. The shift knob I used was for a Subaru with a thread of m12x1.25.

      Cut some threads. Until you get around to that, you could try stretching a thick rubber band or two over the end of the shifter then slide the knob on. Releasing the stretch will hold it pretty secure, enough to satisfy someone lazy.

      TWM sells an adapter. It might or might not work with whatever knob you have.
