    its easy yes it can be done but you need the whole stick with the knob, i got mine of e bay it was from a astra so i had to change gaitor a well worth it mod if i am honest hated the factory job, dealer charges 180 quid for knob so best to keep eye out on ebay

    Its not hard mate, i should have done one when i did them ,
    i have a post somewhere i will see if i can find it

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=82551

    So the way i fitted mine

    If i remember as it was ages ago

    Put the car into gear and remove the gator
    Undo 4 torque bolts that hold it onto the car
    Assuming you also are changing the shaft,

    There is a big thick silver pin , this can be slid out carefully , without disturbing anything
    get 2 x long flat head screw drivers and use one of them to "pop" out the ball joint at the bottom of the gear shaft
    once done it should all just come out,

    Refitting it is vice versa of fitting, except pushing the bottom ball joint back in, this bit can be tricky but also can be done

    Page 2 of my link will show u its fitted
