2004 Buick Regal automatic trans. shifter knob
I need some advice on how to remove the shifter knob on my Regal. I have removed the "C" clip and the knob does not move at all. Tried gentle tugging and a hard pull. When I tried the hard pull it felt like the shaft the knob is on started to pull out of the shifter mechanism in the center console. Also, I saw a photograph of a used OEM knob that had a red and black wires with a connector on the end. The shop manual does not mention any wiring, none of videos about shift knobs mention wiring. I want to gain access to clean and lubricate the actuator rod, if it has one, and lubricate any other mechanism in the shifter. The knob sticks down when the car is placed in park. Thank you in advance for any help.
