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.
