The leather on the stock knob - like the steering wheel - is a little slick and smooth.

Does anyone know what companies make replacement knobs? Is it threaded under there?

Thanks.

Thanks... the one I ordered supposedly is this size and it's too large. Post #6 says they bought this which is M12/1.25:

What size exactly did you order, and what did you receive? 12x1.25 is 2mm larger than 10x1.25, so it won't fit a 10x1.25 thread.

I ordered this and the diameter of the hole is too wide:

They do have a list by car manufacturer

You do have a manual shift car? Most every Mazda made in the last 20 years has a 10x1.25 thread on the manual shifter and a 8x1.25 on the auto shifter.
You might want to do some measuring to see if Mazda has changed something or you were sent the wrong part.....

I'm pretty confident I have a manual transmission. I might have been sent the wrong part. I'll have to take the knob to a hardware store and try it out against a 12x1.25 bolt.
