If you're asking about a shift knob for a 6sp, they don't screw on/off. They're a press fit. It shouldn't be all that difficult to remove though. Mine is siliconed in place because it came off in my hand once.

Re: shifter

Your shifter rod is spline at the top where the nob ball connects. The shift nob ball when new has a plastic inside that does not have splines. Every 3 or so years I have to replace the shift nob because the plastic inside strips out. Since the shift nob does not have any splines and the shift rod does to install a new shift nob just whack in on there carefully not to crack the plastic insert.
With that being said the nob comes off. Will it stay on if you take it off and decide to put it back on probably not. As mentioned mentioned above some silicone will help keep it on. I keep a spare in the glove box of my work truck as sometimes other employees like to yank it off from trying to speed shift.

Re: shifter

If you want it off just strip the plastic insert and it will come off.
The shift pattern can easily be removed with a small metal pick.
