    Default Gear Knob

    Hey Guy,

    Im thinking about fitting a facelift gear knob to my car in place of the pre-facelift, prefer the look o the facelift one.

    Do I need to repalce the entire gear stick or does the actual top knob repalce? If so, how difficult/easy is this to do? Any pics of anyone having done thiers?

    Thx.

    Is that pic of the facelift or pre gear knob? Looks much worse than the one I have (pre-f Signum)... the one with the chrome top that extends down the back edge of the gear knob.

    Most just hammer it off,i used a big punch and placed it under the gearknob and gave it a few taps and it came off,some use other items,just make sure you don't cause any damage to the reverse lift up thingy.......
