    Can't you just change the knob? Do you need to do all of it?

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Take out the trim and lift up the gaiter.
    According to Haynes, you make room by taking out ash tray etc so you can disconnect the cables from the gear stick. (You can probably see on your replacement how to disconnect the cables). You then unto the 4 bolts and out comes the old one. Install the new one (without the cables) then connect the cables, The tricky bit is to get the correct adjustment on the cables - there are some sort marks where the cables connect to the gear box, under the bonnet. Set the gearstick to match the marks and tighten the cables and test.
