    Help! 2017 CRV Shift Knob Removal

    Hi!

    New to the forum. Have had my CRV for about a year now, and it has been amazing for the past 26,000 miles or so.

    The other day my silver button on my shifter somehow de-lodged and is sticking out further than what it was before. It always wiggles a bit. I have looked all around for a DIY showing how to remove the shift knob, and inspected it myself a bit. No luck though.

    Trying to avoid a trip to the dealership, and hope that someone can help with how to remove the shifter so I can tighten up that piece.

    Thanks in advance.

    Why avoid the dealer? You're still under warranty.

    I have this issue, too, with my new 2017. Shifter knob button just fell off! Broken. Now steering wheel won't lock so key is stuck in the ignition. LX model. Looks like it's an inexpensive part and easy to replace. Even though it's under warranty, my dealer is a 70 mile trip and wants my car all day! That's why I'm willing to pay my local mechanic to fix it. Really Honda? You let me down!

    Apparently no other vehicle manufacturers have warranty claims? It's a mechanical device, sometimes they fail.

    I haven't tried it on the CRV but most modern cars just have it held with friction. You carefully pull straight up on it with both hands and eventually it pops off. Make sure to protect your hands from hitting the radio, etc. though.

    As far as your key, go get a small flat-blade screwdriver. Cover it with a rag and carefully pry up the shift lock cover (tiny piece of rectangle on the shift lever base). Then put that screw driver in there and you will be able to move the lever back to park. This procedure should be somewhere in the full manual (not the abbreviated user guide)

    The shift handle is held on by two screws. There is a plastic cover on the front of the shift handle that covers the screws. Use a small pry tool and work it around the edges of the cover to release it. Best to use a plastic tool so you don't scratch anything.
    It easier to remove the cover if you move the shifter to the "L" position.

    So more or less the leather covers the screws.

    So you think its push the inner tab and BINGO?

    I know it's more then that the whole mechanism broke?
