    Vehicle : Vectra SRi 150 Hatch

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 69'000

    Default Well it finally happened! Gear knob popped off!

    Over the last week or so I noticed the gear knob lifting up a few mm's, progressively getting worse until on the way home last night it came off in my hand lol, smacked it back on to get me home and will glue it into place at the weekend, funny thing is its now on as tight as a nun's chuff again! 6 speed knob on an 07 with 46k on the clock.

    Mine did this on a daily basis, never really bothered me until (if i remember correctly) i flicked the stick from 3rd to 4th, it popped off, hit me, then rolled down into the driver side footwell (at the time i thought it had parked itself on my backseat so drove on since i was on the m'way)... have a guess which pedal is happened to be under when i finally realised it wasn't in the back :S

    Anyhows, i happened to need some loctite the day after for changing my disc brakes, so i stuffed a load of that inside and whacked it back on... been alright since
