shift **** removal

Before I ask I did a search and couldn't find it. My dealer just reinstalled the shift **** and they have the shift boot twisted and it is driving me nuts. How do I take the shift **** without damaging the **** or the boot? I know it just screws on but how do I take it off?

Go ahead flame on... I know it is a dumb question....

Not connected......

The shifter just screws off, as our friend dannobre says 'lefty'!

...but the boot isn't connected to the **** at all, if it's twisted, just straighten it out.

You should be able to loosen the pressure on the boot by unscrewing the **** slightly(lefty loosey)! Then just twist the boot to the proper position. If everytime you tighten the **** the boot twists up again, apply a small amount of silicone grease between the **** and boot. And if the **** doesnt want to stay tight in the same position , you can apply 1 drop of REMOVABLE thread sealant to the threads. Then the **** will stay in the position you want, yet can still be removed if necessary.
