ok, this might sound a bit girly, but try warming it with a hairdryer, the heat might loosen it a bit? You never know it might work!

I have just bought my 1st gorgeous 206cc :lol2: and the chrome gear knob is scratched to pieces so does anyone know where I can get a new one as the ones on ebay are horrid and just want a simple plain chrome one like I have.

I also want chrome roll bars for the back and some nice interior mats?

Did you guys get the gear knob off in the end?

:love-thx:

I tried everything else you guys mentioned and the knob came off but I ended up cutting the black plastic off with a hand saw. I used multi grips to break the white plastic apart that was underneath and I dont think it was just that I wasnt strong enough cus Im a girl, I had to pretty much smash it all up to get it off, maybe someone glued it? It looks much better than the old one that was all scratched :D

The knob is on a key and the easiest way to seperate the knob is to gently lever from side to side from the base of the gear knob with a blunt wood chisel or broad flat head screwdriver this leaves the black rubber stop which is also on a key if you are changing like for like the new one will just push on if you need to get through rubber stop off cut it down one side and it will peel away
