Very easy mod.

Just remember when it doesn't come with the first tug/pull... Don't put you face so close as if you're using the force of your mind and hands or you'll end up like me with a bruised ego and nose!

Thoroughly recommend though shifting is more of a pleasure and faster too.

Hi Rob! Welcome along!

I'm not chaning the knob...I don't like the short one, looks naff!

The morons that replaced my windscreen dropped some glue on the gaitor and i can't get it off! So it's a replacement job...Not expensive!

Good guide... Just fitted my new ZHP knob in about 3 minutes and didn't even need to use pliers to get the wiring connectors apart, must have strong fingers 8)

Lovely looking knob :)

Rick, thanks for the post, it's the little things like this along with the major mods that help so much with working on our cars.

How do you get a new shifter back on? I have tried everything from a lubricant to hitting it with a mallet with no luck... any tricks?

Fitted mine today. But it's slightly off centre and irritating me every time I look at it!

Any idea how it can be set straight? Tried twisting it a little but nothing
