    Default Changing Auto Gear-Knob

    Basically, Im looking to change the gear knob on an automatic Vectra C. The chrome 'effect' has worn away, and its going to be one of those things that will annoy me until something is done.

    Can you buy replacement plastic inlays or new gear knobs for autos to change over?

    Bump!

    Does anyone know the answer to this?

    I just bought a vectra and the gearknob appears to have been chewed by a dog or something... really rough and needs changing.

    SamT, I know the inlay bit on the manuals lifts out with gentle coaxing, so you may be able to get the inlay out on your auto....and maybe buy a new one, or carbon wrap it or something.

    Mine has worn badly as well so I would also be very interested in this, had mine since new I have been surprised how much it has worn, the back edge is also quite sharp and annoying.

    The sell complete shifters on ebay quite often so the unit should just swap out the same way the manual ones do.
