    Hello All,

    Any one know how to do this - save me wrecking the gear stick?

    If memory serves me right you have to cut them off - not as big a problem as
    it sounds. The knobs are plastic/leather/rubber and the lever is metal so
    you soon know if you are cutting the wrong bit.

    NO! Don't cut anything!!!!!!!

    I have done this job.......Brute force is all you need. Honestly.

    The knob is BONDED on to the shaft. Twist in any direction and it will come
    free. It leaves the lift reverse in place.

    Ta for the advice - I'll have a go at the twist and pull method!!! Make a
    change that.

    Sorry can't help with the corsa.

    VX dealer may know and may allow you a peek at the parts screen to confirm

    Just changed the gear knob - it was exactly as you said - twist to old one
    off and push on the new one - good advice - ta for that.
