I have a 1997 Honda CRV and recently the gears are playing up. When the car is off the gears move easily but when the engine is on it is difficult to put into gear - sometimes impossible. Once I actually get the car moving i have to force the gears in and often i can't get it into third - it just crunches.

First, unscrew the original gear knoband remove completely.
Next unclip the panel which covers the base of the gear knob. This unclips quite easily without the use of tools or screwdrivers. Pop it off from the top end first and then lifts out from the bottom.
Screw on the new gear knob. Once tightly fitting, put the gaiterover it. Top Tip - use a cable tie to keep the new gaitor fitting snug! This stops it slipping down and looking saggy. Clip off the excess off the end of thecable tie.
Finally tuck the new gaiterin and ensure it is fitting snug. Then follow clip the plastic base cover back on. Sit back and look proudly at you new smart, quality gear knoband gaiter!
