How do I remove peugeot 306 gear knob


If it's the original knob then you have to remove the gaiter housing (the leather thing around the stick for novices) as the knob extends to under the gaiter and no amount of pulling will remove it without doing this first. It's easy to remove just by lifting from the long edges first and it slips out. The gaiter is secured into the middle of the bottom of the knob by a zippy tie that you have to cut. You can then just pull the whole knob up with a little bit of force but it slips up revealing a white plastic shaft

The reverse gear is fine but when you let go of the gear stick the reverse lights go out and light pressure put back on gear stick bits lights back in


Ok! This is the reverse light switch located under the gear stick gaiter! Could just need adjusting.....double nut locking system or is faulty/broken! The switch has a plunger that is activated by the movement of the gear stick to reverse!

I bought new leather gear gaiter for my passat 2003 and i tried to replace it but it is difficult to unscrew the gear knob what i have to do can you tell me step by step


Pull up the leather boot at the console. It's just clipped in and can be pried up with your fingers. The boot is wrapped around a plastic ring that snaps into the console. Pull the boot up and get access to the bottom of the knob. You will have to pry open the one time use crimp ring with a small screwdriver or awl. Then pull off the knob. Use a small hose clamp as a replacement.

How do i remove gear knob and gaiter on 2005 vw passat


For this year, the knob wasn't screwed on, it was more of a snap on rig. The easiest way is to just get some leverage and pull like hell! Or use a screw driver. Just be careful not to scratch anything! Good luck!

Gear knob


The manual knobs are on there really tight but they're just twisted on. You need to turn like crazy on it to get it loose. You can wrap a towel around it and use channelock pliers or a big wrench if need be.

Vw passatt gaiter change


The clip seems to be a use once and destroy during removal. I used a nylon tie and the home mechanics friend (duct tape) to fasten the new gaiter. Not perfect but quite usable and avoided a trip to the dealer.
