    Default How do you remove

    The auto gear lever?
    I need to replace the broken trim around the gear lever when the car comes back before I P/X it and the trim won't come off without removing the knob.

    never took one apart but from EPC it seems that it pops off in a similar style to the manual knobs, then you can disassemble the gearshift.

    the knob appears to come with the shiftlock..the collar underneath is also a seperate part...

    it won't come off easily, but the manuals normally come off with a few good taps from underneath knocking them upwards..

    Which bit of trim are you replacing? The bit that the selector lever actually slots into? i.e. the one with the gear markings and the winter button?, or is it just the trim on the lever itself under the gear knob?

    If it's the part around the actual lever/shaft then it's fairly easy...

    1) Put lever into D position.
    2) Grasp the trim on the shaft and turn clockwise about 45°. Then with a screwdriver, or similar, push this bit of trim downwards i.e. towards the floor.
    3) This will reveal a small lug on the selector knob. Use a small screwdriver to release the lug and remove the knob.

    Voila! Fitting is reverse of removal.

    Ah, righto. I'll get the info for that - but have you got the part or priced it up? It looks expensive as I don't think the top trim comes separately. I think it is all part of the selector unit which has electronics etc. all attached to it. I'll check but that's what it looked like.
