Alright chaps... I'm going to be changing over the standard s-line gear knob tomorrow and swapping it for the solid brushed alloy one. Should be a nice addition. Anyway i haven't even tried removing the old one yet obviously because if it doesn't go as smoothly as i anticipate i still have to drive the car! So, has anyone done this? Is there anything i need? Do i have to remove the whole of the gearstick surrounding trim to release it or what? Just trying to avoid any schoolboy errors! Thanks in advance. Paul.
