    Default gear stick knock ??

    The top of my gear stick is somehow loose when you tap or slightly push it it makes a tapping noise, its not the whole stick moving down just the head, ive flicked off the part with the numbers on and theres a strange hole id suggest needing a special tool, any ideas or is it only the stellers that have this tool ??

    I have just worked out that it gets worse when it is hot like today, so i assume it must be a friction fit and the heat makes it loose! i think we might just have to put up with it! annoying as it is

    That used to happen to my dad's one, until one day I ever so slightly tugged on it and it came off in my hand. I think it means its about to drop off!

    Try giving it a pull, I bet it will come off!
    I ended up getting another 2nd hand one and that been on for a while without any probs!

    You could take it off and glue it back in?


    Bye bye Vec B

    Had exactly the same issue with mine about two weeks ago. The knob just pulls off but it takes a bit of upwards pulling. Once it's off you can see the the splined fit. Refitted it and the noise returned about a day later. Took it off again and this time gave it a good clout with my hand, been quite since.

    Mine was the same, just pul it off, refit it and give it a hefty clout with your hand (or put a cloth over it and give it a tap with a hammer.

    Mine has been fine for months now.
