Should probably add 'gear' into that title...

Anyway, my gear knob has gone and lost a bit of the silver trim round the front edge, it bugs me. I really fancy fitting something from the Richbrook range, has anyone else done the swap?

While having a quick look this evening, the knob does just simply unscrew like most, but the gaiter seems to be stuck to the bottom, does this come off some how, if so how?

Cheers in advance!

the gaiter should jut be elasticated and pull down

As Arts said, you just pull it down, it will seem tight, but if you pull it away from the knob slowly it will separate...

Wash your minds people!

Hi fella,

Got it new off eBay for 12, it's a Richbrook knob. It's actually bigger than I thought it would be (suit you sir!). The hardest bit was prizing the gaiter off which took some persuasion. Once off, just unscrew the original (lefty loosey). The Richbrook comes with two lower collars, one for gaiters and one without, slip this on first, the screw down the new knob, tighten up the grub screws, slip the gaiter over the collar and insert the gear top. Supplied two, one for 5 speeds or an easy mod, make it a 6 speed!

not bad at all... I am keeping an eye out for custom auto knobs... not sure how much of a nuisance that would be to replace, but I will check Haynes later!
