Hi to all,

I have a new rubber gaiter to put over the gear lever in the car, seals the gap in the transmission tunnel / body where the gear stick  pokes up,   goes under the cloth/leather trim that fits around the gear lever. The wooden knob on top  appears not to unscrew. The gear lever does however turn when you try to unscrew it, there is  a joint hidden underneath the existing rubber gaiter, where the stick attaches to the gear actuation rod that actually goes into the gear box, whilst it turns it feels as if it's  stuck in a piece of rubber and does not appear to move either up or down.

Any / all thoughts greatly received.

John

Hi John, the gearstick is a funny arangement it pushes on in the bottom of the chrome part is a rubber bush keywayed washer and spring clip, here are some pictures, yours won't have the split pin that is something I have added.

Dan,

That's brill, many thanks, I'll get out into the garage in a couple of days/week and try it. I've got a torn cartilage at the moment, done last Wednesday while taking out the ignition switch in the lotus position.

Again many thanks John
