    Default I have a problem with my gearknob....

    My gear knob head keeps coming off and I can't get it to stay on! I can get it to push down and then it'll stay put for about 15 mins and then pop off again. I've had a look around but can't see any gromit screw hole so it doesn't screw on that way... does anyone know how it fixes onto the gear stick permanantley? Will I have to give it the business end of a glue gun?

    Yeah super glue or similar will do the trick, seems to be a common failure of the later cars

    You can do what i did, take the spring off, then nothing will force the knob upwards.

    You also might want to consider an aftermarket gear knob.
