    loctite bearing fit used on mine it had that anoying click when you youched the gear knob when you re fit it make sure you take out the center bit with the numbers on clean out the inside and the shaft make sure that when you put it back on all the splines line up and that the knob faces the right way so when its on and the center re fitted the center will face the correct way apply loctite beaing fit give it a gentle but frim tap on thaen fit your center cap and grin......
