I had the same problem on my 1985 Sierra. I thought I'd have to cut the gear knob off but I ended up removing the gear stick and putting it in a vice and used a pair of stilsons on the knob to remove it. Now that the gear knob has been off I can remove it by hand without removing the gear stick from the gear box.

the manufacture uses some sort of lock tite. i know in the past i have had to heat bolts on the sami to get things loose. i do not know if this is plausible with the gear shift.

good luck

my .02 cents

I managed to get the knob off by removing the whole gear stick and using some pliers, however now i can't get the gear stick to get back into the case??? any ideas

it's because of the bearings check them and try putting the gear in neutral move it with a flat screwdriver it's easy check the bearings if you don't the stick will move strangely XD
