    Default gear knob

    I gotten a new (used) gear knob for my car, as i have that plastic one.

    So wanted to get a leather fitted, got that off and retrimmed the leather.

    so today i wanted to make the swap, guess what.. it didnt fit.. found out the "rod" on the leather one is 1 mm thiker than the one i have i my car.. (13 mm on the leather and 12 mm on the plastic.)

    what can i do? besides buying all leather ones i can find som i can try and replace.. but other options please.

    Wrap tape around the lever - either electrical tape or maybe even duck tape.

    You need to get a gear knob from a car with your gearbox ken

    As I found out all of the knobs only fit 2 or 3 models, the 2.2 petrol and 2.0dti share, as do the 2.2dti and 3.2 petrol

    Look for a gear knob from a 1.8 sri and you should get the one you need

    Sorry Ken, for some reason I thought you had a 1.8

    Well any gear knob for a 2.2 or 2.0 dti will fit
