Osram nightbreaker unlimited or cool blue intense last pretty well for high output bulbs.

In Topic: A Picture Of My Knob

Today, 08:17 PM

hi guys this is a picture of the knob on my work car


just wanted to know the part number as i prefer this knob to mine. so I'd like a knob swap...

Can't seem to find this knob on ebay or ford parts



Just to keep it clean and actually answer the original question-

Is your current gearknob the same style but with the silver insert?

You can get the different inserts here-






If you don't have that style of knob at present I have a spare one with a bit of wear on the chrome band around the insert that you can have for posting price (say a fiver?) and you can get one of the inserts I've listed to replace the worn part.

If you're interested then contact me via P/M to make arrangements.


I'd advise you use a vice and a rubber mallet in order to reattach the fitting collar that holds the gaiter to the knob as it is a tough job to refit properly.

If you really want to go flash there are real carbon fibre inserts that glue in instead of the original inserts and you can customise them as you see fit-

I always press the button in and then pull the handbrake up one click to ensure it's engaged properly.
