    Default Knob off

    Hi all,
    Has anyone had their knob come off whilst driving? This has happened on my pre facelift Vectra, and now my new facelift Vectra! A common problem?

    Yes, on mine too.
    I once banged it back on so firmly, I could not select reverse.

    Ha ha! I had to use plumbers tape but forgot to put the spring back in first! Took it off again, re-taped it and put it back on, and left the spring out again!!! What a plonker!! 3rd time lucky

    Large blob of silicon sealant inside knob worked for me; knob's on securely but still has slight movement in it side to side, so should come off again easily with sufficient pulling if required.

    in my preface it has about 2mm of up/down movement, and clicks everytime i change gear, so thinking this is the early signs of it lol, but i cant move the thing anymore than the free movement
