1992 Cherokee Sport MT Shifter Knob

Good evening, all! I searched and found several topics regarding the shifter knob, but none that fully answered my question. I have a '92 Cherokee Sport with a MT and need to replace the shifter knob. Is mine the one that pops on and off or is there supposed to be a screw here? I purchased this used and the knob was broken when I got it. How would I go about removing anything I am supposed to and finding/replacing the knob? Thanks for any help!

If you still have the old knob put some epoxy putty in the hole and jam it back in there and let it set for fifteen minutes. If not I believe you can unscrew that knurled part with a pair of vice grips.

Sorry to double-post, but does this mean that my shifter should be the one that screws off counter-clockwise or the one that should pop off? My knob itself has a huge hollow space in the bottom where it looks as if something filled the void in the distant past. Prior to shoving epoxy in it I would like to know how it would have been via the factory so I know how to take it off in the future. Thanks!

it appears to be the screw off type - it has a metal fitting inside the plastic knob. it appears that the two pieces have separated. do you still have the knob? if so, i would unscrew the silver piece and epoxy the two pieces together off of the shifter and then screw them back on once the epoxy dries. that collar then is tightened against the bottom of the shifter knob to keep it in place. if you don't have the knob itself you will have to unscrew the silver piece before you can screw the new knob on.

It should screw off counter clockwise.

Yep grab the knurled part with vise grips or channell locks and it will unscrew.

As for the epoxy putty stuff, all of my heater and vent control knobs in my old CJ-7 were made of the stuff, with Budweiser caps added for the redneck style factor

Hahaha! That's awesome! LOL! Sadly, this last Saturday the Jeep took a mad turn for the worse. I was driving on the interstate about 2 miles from my home and I just lost oil pressure and engine acceleration power and coasted to the side of the road. The power cut on the Cherokee when I pressed in on the clutch. It started right back up and the motor was making all kinds of noise upon startup. I had no choice but to limp it home (did not have anyone to tow it for me. I took the pan off and replaced the oil pump (it was wonky anyway) and could not see any rod damage or shavings in the oil or on any parts looking up into the engine. I have not had a chance to restart it after changing the pump as it got waaaayyy too cold out to torque everything down. I'm taking it to my friends shop this week to finish up the job. Anyone ever heard of something like this?

BTW, the shifter is fixed thanks to y'all! It's as solid as can be!
