Just bought a gear gaiter off eBay as mine was worn. Bought from "topgaiters". This was the exact listing:
What a nightmare it was getting the old gaiter off that plastic surround!! But this was nothing comapred to what was to come next....
The neck of the new gaiter was so unbelievably tight, that when i FINALLY made it over the gear knob, it tore the stitching. With everything in place, you can see a clear rip now with the cable tie obvious from a mile away.
Are they all so ridiculously tight? I tried twisting the knob off like i did with my old Escort, but that was a no-go.
Is this just a bad one then or are they all like this? There must be a way to get them on without butchering them, so any tips or recommendations to buy from an alternative seller?
