Gear Knob!!


Registered User
Greetings All

Overtime my gear knob and the plastic insert that fits in the top have become a little tired looking.... I have been searching relentlessly to find a replacement to no avail. Does anyone know if the 8P Knob will fit on to my 8L gearstick? Or any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated don't really want a "skull" or shiny silver one!!

Cheers :think:


Defo worth the wait :)
Yes, believe they do fit, if you do a search you will see that some people on here have fitted the 8P S3 knob to the 8L S3, so it should be the same across the range.

Be nice if it gave me the 6th gear aswell lol

I remember when I were a young lad, a not-very-bright chap I went to school with bought a Mk1 Fiesta just after passing his test, and was so proud of the fact it was a 'special', with a 5th gear.

When queried about this, as we all knew there were not any 5 gear mk1s, he proudly showed us the car, with the phrase, 'see the gear knob - 5 gears'

We then showed him how the stick moved, and he went a bit quiet!

Sadly he wrote it off about a month later...
