Loose thing on gear shift knob.

Recommended Posts

On the top of the gearshift knob (tequipment wood/alu.) there is a small plastic “gearindicator”. That “plate” is loose inside. It’s something I can live with but its annoying when it rotates all the time and maybe it’s possible to “glue” it back in position.

Anyone with same experience and/or any ideas??

How to remove the knob??

Removing the knob is easy... but I am not sure that will solve your problem... unless you want to change the knob.

Most of the standard gear shift knobs just pull off (very hard) and most of the optional knobs have a set screw. To check lift the leather boot coving the shifter lever all the way up over the knob. If there is no 5 mm set screw near the bottom of the knob then it just pulls off. Take care and perhaps even open the sunroof as the pull on - off knobs come off with a snap.

I have not removed the shift pattern plate on that type of shift, but I did it on 2 standard shifts. It was held on with very thin double faced tape. I got a thin blade behind it and broke the glue bond. See if you can get your shift pattern out and reglue it. Jeff
