    Default Fitting an astra gearstick

    I guys , I have a 1.8 Sri 56 plate and I'm wanting to fit the Astra h gearstick which I have now got courtesy of eBay , I've looked at the how 2 but only has info on fitting vxr gearstick to a six speed ... Mines a 5 speed with lift upper left reverse, I've pulled up the gaitor on the vectra to have a look but I'm not sure on how this is done... Any advice from anyone that has done this would be greatly appreciated.... ...

    Thanks for the reply mate, now without sounding thick, I've looked at it and there are 4 upper torx screws by a ball joint and 4 lower down torx screws on the floor of the tunnel of you like, is it the upper or Lower 4 I need to undo, and does the vectra gearstick pull out of the black frame/cage thing easily and Astra one fit in its place easily.... Cheers mate

    Thanks for the replies guys.... I will take pictures when I attempt it, it'll be on my next day off probably Friday, .. So to summise..... It's undo the 4 upper torx screws, this should then lift the stick but with a bit of twisting and jiggling, remove the vectra gearstick from the black frame thing I've just undone, fit the Astra gearstick back into the black frame thing, and refit..... I've done a lot of things to my car myself in the past.. E.g hid's.. Leather interior etc , but for some reason this gearstick thing is making me a bit twitchy, ha ha.... Oh well , what's the worst that can happen......(gulp)...
