Default '06+ stick shift balls...screwed on or glued on?

Don't want to risk yanking it off if I can't easily put it back on.

Would like to replace it w/a big leather ball if one exists.

Anyone know?

Cool Re: '06+ stick shift balls...screwed on or glued on?

My 2006 NA standary tranny ball is friction fit. Problem is, once I got it off, and reseated it, it jiggled a little. So, I put it back on with a few drops of silicone sealer. (It came back off again with no problem)
-Just use a heavy cloth under the ball when you tap it upwards, so as to not damage the ball or the S.S. stick.

Mine has a tension screw on it and has been fine for a couple of years.

The laws for sling shots.

If I buy a sling shot from this company FREE Shipping Of Wholesale Items China Direct Wholesaler Distributor will it be ok to make it into the states? It would be coming from China. I have a friend in Australia who wants me to order one for him because he does not have paypal but I am worried that the slingshot will not make it through Australian customs. This LDU company says that they guarantee delivery to Australia for slingshots but I would like to learn some things so here I am asking. Here is the address to the guaranteed sling shot delivered to Australia for my friend Wholesale Sling Shots To Australia - Chinese Wholesaler For Australian but there is no talk about slingshots shipping to the USA if they are guaranteed or not for delivery.

Hey Palidin,

What year do you have??? I have an '03 and mine has a screw on it as well. I am glad this is a recent post, cuz I plan to remove mine and repaint it with my touch up paint! It's peeling...

I planned on doing this this weekend! I'll post pics guys!

Once you unscrew it, does it easily come off???

Okay, so I did it!!!! My cousin helped me sand the old silver paint off. He kinda sanded my chrome a lil', by accident!

Anyway, I used the touch up paint from Automotive Touch Up and it worked well. I tried to remove the ball first, but I didn't have a torque screwdriver small enough to unscrew it. So, I just used a mirror to paint in hard to see areas. It worked quick well! I let it dry over night and then applied the clear coat for the finish!

Here is a pic:
