    How easy to change gear knob?

    Hi,

    I have a Astra 02 Comfort, which as you know comes with the 'wooden' gear knob, which i'd love to change.

    I've looked at the 'How To...' thread but that was carried out on a more standard gear knob.

    Has anyone changed this before and if so how to and is it easy enough because i'm a complete beginner.

    Thanks.

    Mark.

    Hi Msrk,

    I have just done mine (friday) all i did was twist it anticlockwise. It is fairly tight, but you will get it off without breaking anything. I replaced mine with the later model silver type astra knob as mine was the std black sxi one.
