    Eek I need a new knob

    ........and a gear lever assembly.

    My knob has recently started clicking when changing gear and there is vertical play in it.

    Dealer has told me if left as it is it will fall off. New assembly ordered and will be fitted shortly under warranty.

    So if your knob starts clicking, you know what to do.

    Dealer told me the assembly is over £150.

    To be fair, my car is under warranty, so VX can replace it. Otherwise I would probably go for the 'bash it back on' option.

    Mine has been coming off in the hot weather recently but as I'm out of warranty I replaced it with a Richbrook leather gear knob from ebay. Nice wee bit of kit, but the thing comes half assembled (part C is screwed inside part B etc) and you need to cut the rubber stick cover to fit it properly for the reverse lift mechanism. It really does look smart though and is a lovely replacement for the standard gear knob.

    The link below is what I bought. Even though the seller has dubious feedback at times, it was shipped out recorded delivery and I got it within 3 days. You may want to try others...

    My knob came off last summer - car was still in warranty so took it back to main dealer and they fixed it by applying some thick black adehsive to the top of the gearstick. I had to leave it 24 hours to set properly but its been fine ever since and doesn't click anymore.
    Seems a common problem (when I looked on here last year because mine was faulty) on veccys and one that my dealer knew how to remedy.

    Signum is in tomorrow for this - dealer started by saying that knob only guranteed for 12 months - but they are going to ring VX to check.

    Good to know that some of you guys got this fixed under warranty.
