The leather piece on the top end of my shifter (the one you hold as you shift gears) squeaks when I push it or pull it. In fact, if I grab it and sort of rock it or try to twist/turn it, it squeaks even more. This gets really annoying when I drive, especially when my radio is off. (Thank God the dealer took care of the axle spline noise! It used to be much worse: a combination of both.)

Anybody else with this problem? Can this piece be easily removed? Maybe I can add something like teflon and screw it again for a tighter, quieter fit.

No squeeks here but you can investigae root cause by removing the knob by pressing down firmly & turning 1/4 counter-clockwise.
Good luck http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Thanks! I will try that during my lunch time today. Do you think a little teflon would help?

Update... Removed the knob following your instructions and then installed it again right after and the squeak is gone! I hope the "fix" lasts. Thanks!!!
