Gearstick knob.


Recommended Posts

September's stupid question.

My 1988 X180 N/A's gearstick knob is getting loose. It rotates a little bit and also moves up and down. On gear changes I have to push it down (a bit) to keep it from moving (apart from the required gear change travel). Any tips?

I had the same problem, not sure though if mine had been glued into place by the previous owner of they are normally just a pushon fit?

I pulled the knob off my stick carefully and completely (hard to say that without smiling) and then rapped a strip of silicone tape tightly around the top end of the stick. It make the size wider meaning that when I pushed the knob back on it was much tighter fit and has stayed solid for more than3 years now.

I did look into replacements, but not sure it's an easy swap o/a the reverse lift?
