I finally got a new (used) Tuffy center console for my FJ 40. Cup holders, an arm rest, and a place for change are a major improvement. I love it! The shifter nob hits it slightly when I shift into second gear, so I want to take out the shifter and bend it slightly in the vice. The only trouble is, I can't get it out. I was told to press down and turn it to the right with a vice grips, but I couldn't get it to budge. I don't think I want to try and bend it in place. So how exactly do you get it out?
