    Default Gear stick

    Alright chaps this is my first post. Drive a Vectra life CDTI. Basically the handle of the gearstick keeps coming off. Is this a common fault and is there an easy quick inexpensive solution?

    Thanks in advance.

    Do you mean the gear knob? If yes, you are not alone. I fixed mine with a healthy blob of silicon sealant and a rubber mallet; it holds the knob on securely but there's enough movement so it wouldn't take much to get it off again if I needed.

I need to get it sorted cause its dangerous and if it comes off some day and im in the wrong place at wrong time, i dread to think what could happen. And yeah i must get round to introducing myself, Ta.
