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.

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

Change gear gaiter for mazda 6 2008


Remove the shift lever knob. Remove the #2 console panel by prying up with a flat screwdriver to release the clips. (The #2 panel is the one that includes your cup holders) Remove the #1 console panel (the one around the shifter) by prying straight up with a flat screwdriver to release the clips. Remove the screws securing the shifter boot (gaiter) to the bottom side of the #1 console panel.

Reverse procedure to install.

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.
