Question about 2004 Saab 9-3
I have a Saab 93 registration LC56 ODS 1.8 diesel with manual gear shift. The gear knob keeps popping out. Does it just need to be glued back. Or is there a special clip of some sort that holds it in place?
Thank you for your help.
I had the same problem on my 03 aero, the gear knob sits on a spline on the stick. The issue is wear on the gearknob (alloy I think) I resolved mine last year by turning the knob slightly so that the splines effectively cut a new slot into the gear knob. This does mean it is not fully square but rotating only one spline does not make that much difference. It does need a good few taps to get it down on the splines but managed it by hand ok.I turned mine so it was angled to be read by the driver, so more 11 o clock than 12 o clock. 8 months later all is fine. Hope that makes sense.

You can glue it and that will fix the problem...i had a ranger manual trans with same problem but not exactly sure with your specific application. you can glue it in place and let it set up for a bit (at least 30 min or however long instruction on glue say) go to local auto parts store they'll have what you need. i'd only do this as a last resort though but it works...and it's up to you
