    From most of the post that I have seen on changing the gearknob on a Vectra it seems to require the following tools:- a very large hammer, a very large hacksaw and a very large chisel. Best of luck!!!

    Mine is a facelift and it pulled off with a bit of force. I would suggest put it in first gear, put some grips on the bottom and hammer up! If not then the hack saw it is but I wouldn't do that unless you REALLY like the new one!

    Let us know how you get on,
