Can anyone tell me how to get the gearstick knob off on a Rio, does it unscrew or is it stuck on? I want to fit a different type.. Thakyou in advance.

to confirm, it unscrews to the left, its not meant to come off so you need quite a bit of force. What kind of gearbnob are you getting? I've been wanting a round shape, and my fake leather is peeling off now.

Hi tkjeeves,Thanks for your confirmation on the gear knob. They have a nice selection in our local Halfords and another motor store near by,and I'm still deciding. I wanted to take the old one with me to make sure that the diameter is correct for the lift lock slide on thereverse movement. They are quite expensive and I wanted to make sure. Will let you know... Regards, Alroy.

If you heat your knob up then it will expand on the shaft and you should be able to screw it off easier.
