    Help with Irmscher gear knob please..............

    Hi guys,

    Ive had the irmscher gear knob on my car from the factory.

    Just recently it has come loose and has now come off completely.

    Looking at it, there seems to be a grub screw inside it which tightens it onto the shaft (like normal aftermarket knobs)

    However, I cannot see how you get to this grub screw to tighten it up.
    Does the knob come apart in some way???
    I dont really want to wreck it by trying to get it apart if thats not how its fitted.

    The knob is still in mint condition, its just that its come loose.

    Anyone fitted one of these as an aftermarket part who can tell me how they actually go on???

    Cheers for any help in advance.

    Maybe

    All sorted now, I took it apart into 4 pieces yesterday while doing 80 on the M25 :shock:

    The screw in metal part had come off with the knob, so it is very hard to unscrew it as you cant get hold of it.

    However, I managed to get it out by angling the knob on the shaft and twisting, so it caught on the rough part and held the metal part in place.

    Thanks for your help Gazza, you were indeed right, they twist on and off, but in this case, it got slightly more complicated!!!!

    Sorted now anyway.
