Default 2003 Accord 6 Speed shift knob

I did some work on the stereo which required removing the shift knob on
my 2003 Accord V6 Speed. Unfortunately when I put it back on it doesn't
even come close to lining up right. If I tighten it all the way the text
on the knob is upside down.

Anybody got any ideas on how I can get it to look right again? I can't
just tighten it part of the way because it's way too loose.

TIA,

Bob

You might try putting a number of wraps of Teflon tape on the threads, and
see if that takes up the slack enough for you.

Was there a locknut underneath the knob. If so, you align the knob and
tighten it with the locknut. Otherwise tape or insert something inside the
knob to take up the slack -- .

use the locknut on the stick to adjust it.

If there's no locknut, you might also try holding the gearshift knob
turned in different positions when you are "starting" the thread.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. There is a nut under the knob, but
it's not a locknut. It turns with the knob so even turning it up a bit
doesn't help since once the knob gets to it, it just turns the nut down
with it. The teflon tape idea didn't quite pan out, either.

I'll try stuffing some paper in the knob and hopefully it will be enough
to stop it a half turn short of where it is now.

I'd sure like to know how they do it in the factory.

Bob
