    Unhappy Gear Leaver Disaster...HELP!

    hello guys didn't know whereto post this / tried to find an existing to post though couldn't find any. recently got a Momo Nero Gear Knob on eBay MOMO NERO Shift Knob NERBK1 - eBay (item 390282482716 end time Jul-20-11 09:17:45 PDT)

    though it doesnt seem to fit, they say its universal but when i took the OE knob off it wouldn't fit at all with the 3 screws as it was a push-down unlike the Momo one which was none moveable, so just wondering if anyone has had such an issue. quite sad as i paid 125$ which is quite allot for a knob heh..

    please any help would be so appreciated, ill try to get sum pictures

    that should work. i after all have a pool ball on mine! if you lift the gaitor there is a metal clip round the plastic, remove this and lift the knob off and if its like mine you will be left with a straight bar which the momo knob then fixes on using the grub screws.

    need clarification on this onethen please OP. It should work fine as the push down mechanism is in the base of the lever so is nowhere near the knob

    true steve but they do do push down gear knobs and no push down so the gear knob must have something to do with it

    as you can see from the images, i dont know if its my model or everyones not expert , though the black plastic cylinderical object slides up and down with the spring inside it and at the top there is sum sort of plastic as u can see in the images and a Star bolt holding the spring down from popping out. when i try to install it im failing miserably , i tried to remove the transparent jelly like plastic at the top and the tried to fit it didnt work even tried to take the hole block piece of also didnt work so as u can tell quite quite a let down , also knowing i wont get a refund ..

    it looks different to mine so can't really advise so much. i think pic 4 is the solution and you will have to make it work somehow. sorry can't be more help.

    if you bought it off the net and they stated 'universal, fits all cars' then that comes under the 14day distance selling stuff and they legally have to give a refund i think. plus discription is misleading
