    Hi

    I want to change the gear knob on my partners audio A3 TDI 6 speed.
    Is there a guide that I can use. I take it you would fit a new gater at the same time, they look like one unit.

    Thanks
    Nathan

    You need to prise up the surround at the base of the gator, then lift the gator up and there will be a one-use clip holding the knob to the lever shaft. Pop it off then it comes off as a complete unit.

    PM me if your in need of a gear knob as i have a whole 6 speed S-Line Knob, gator and alliminium surround ;)
