    Default vectra c sri gear knob removal

    hi everybody

    can anybody tell me how to get the gear knob off my vectra please???


    as my leather around the knob is looking abit messy so i have bought new leather for it, it comes with all the instructions how to remove and refit the leather but no clue how to get it off.

    i have heard of the hacksaw removal but this is not an option for me as i need to reuse the old knob


    thanks dave

    Was just about to say the same!!

    Mine came off of its own accord, popped it back on and had a ***** of job to then get it back off.

    I think i got mine off by getting something under the knob itself and then tapping it all the way around until it came lose.

    I removed my gear knob today i cut it with an angle grinder i had no hacksaw i tried to pull twist etc but it would not budge so as i was cutting the knob just feel off lol and after all my hard work the replacement gear knob from a 02 vectra would not fit my 05 vectra it would no fit onto the shaft of my gear stick so i had to go buy a shabby gear stick as a temporary fix . There are splines holding the knob on no glue from was i have seen today from my own knob lol
