    Default gear stick top pulled off !

    Just recoverd from a 3 hr session of drilling out a bust locking wheel nut, to going for a drive and then the gear stick head pulling off in my hands
    its been tapping for a week or so, pushed it back on just hope it decides to stay there. Oh these vauxhalls there just quality parts !!

    Mine did the same, it keeps popping off now.

    I might try a bit of araldite on it the next time it comes off.

    as far as I know yes. They fit over the gear stick bar and theres an allen key underneath which you tighten. would suggest you tighten the bolt so it leaves a mark then slightly countersink that position so when you tighten next time it will not come off or spin. tbh I never had the problem without countersinking but if your unsure thats what to do

    Nice one cheers for that. Think my misses will agree to this mod as its a bit dangerous having a gear stick that falls to bits
