Gear Knob
Quick question, is the insignia gear knob different to the Astra one? If so how is it different and would it fit from the siggy to the Astra? I'm trying to work out which gear knob I have as the siggy is apparently thicker

Astra GTC auto gear knob replacement
Hi Iv got a 2014 Astra GTC Auto, I’m after some advice, Iv spoken to Vauxhall themselves and they want £300 for a replacement gear knob.

The rubber on my gear knob has worn and split, also in the recent snow my car got stuck and while flicking from reverse to drive to rock the car out of a ditch the button on the back of the gear knob has snapped.

Does anyone know where I can get a replacement for a more reasonable price, and how to fit the replacement.

Many thanks

Illuminated gear knob for a tenner

I have been changing all my car's led's in switches etc over to blue and green,  and wanted a light up gear knob.. but the ones available don't seem to be the current type of knob, and they cost a fortune. 

Someone mentioned on here a while back about removing the plastic cover from the gear knob, and putting a coloured sticker over the chrome square that is under it, changing the colour the gear's and shift pattern shows up.

This got me thinking of a way to make it ill

Zafira c - Shift knob not returning
Hello to all.

I have a 2012 Zafira C (Tourer) and started to have a problem in the shift knob.
The shift drives normally for shifting gears, but the gear does not return to its original position by itself.
Same as this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Bx6XjWofEw

Can anyone help, or already had this problem?
IS there an "easy" solution for this?

Thank you

Gear Knob issue (Automatic 2014 Astra GTC)
Hello all,

Useless with cars but my GTC (2014 (64 plate)) the gear knob has effectively broke. The little silver latch that I hold has broken. Vauxhall are quoting my 600 quid but I cba to pay that. Really don't want to.

I'm wondering if someone could help me identify what replacement I'd require? I have no idea about cars. Quite frankly I bought the GTC 4 years ago and I drive it. Never had an issue with it thankfully.

I'm not particularly knowledgeable when it comes to what Opals are or Ast
