    Default gearknob keeps coming off

    hi
    My gearknob keeps coming off, but vauxhall stated its not covered under warrentry as its part of the trim, which is only covered for the first year( utter bulls****) but to replace it and the gear shaft is around £200, is their anything i could use to stick on with

    a tiny blob of silicone or super glue will do the trick

    same problem 6 months back "whacked" it back on again a couple of times only for it to come off again. As previous posts mention, your common or garden superglue is the answer!

    Yep silicon under knob, push on and gently tap. Done. Not had any trouble since. Clear silicon i find is best.
