    Default VXR Gear Knob

    I've just got hold of an Astra VXR gearlever/knob for my Facelift Vectra SRi, I was wondering if anyone can help on how I can change the gaitor for the Vectra one?

    Lever off the chrome ring on the Astra knob.

    Remove the gaitor.

    Take Vectra knob, and do whatever you have to to remove the gaitor form it (I had to unstitch an inch or so down from the top...)

    Cut off top centimetre or so from Vectra gaitor to get rid of the fold.

    Place vectra gaitor on the Astra stick and manouvere the end of it into the chrome ring.

    Clip chrome ring back into place and it should grip the gaitor.

    Fold back down and admire...

    It should be fairly obvious once you get it all apart mate, took me about 45 minutes or so to do the whole job as I was working it out as I went along...
