is there a after market gear knob that fits the 197? Or will any lift up reverse one fit?
Richbrook do a polished one, other than that its the newer RS one or a matt silver Laguna V6 knob.
Any links to the richbrook one? So do universal lift up reverse knobs not fit?
I am guessing Jim, I haf a look on eBay and Amazon before deciding I will get my original re-trimmed by Royal for £35.
Ive had metal gear knobs before, especially a weighted stainless Storm Motorworx one in my previous BMWs and loved it. But these are a different and metal knobs have their drawbacks of being ice cold in winter and scalding in summer. Also due to the fitment on Renaults I suspect you will have to remove the gearknob fitment from the gear shaft to get any aftermarket knob on.
Ye I had a ep3 with a skunk 2 Weighted gear knob, summer it was to hot and winter was to cold lol I got a hat for it in the end.
If Re trimming is only £35 think that's the best option.
Thanks for the help
I'll be getting some white nylon and aluminium ones made shortly.
Just need to finalise some sizes first.
A direct replacement?
Yes bud. I had two prototypes plastic printed - just need to make sure they fit properly before committing to getting the machine shop to make some.
Ok keep me updated mate
Bit more fettling required...... Just a prototype remember.
Will crack on after I'm back on holiday next week
Get a surround for your stereo man gear knob looks good though, how does it mount??
Haha. It's all getting ripped out soon as it's a track car
It uses the original nylon bushing which the standard knob uses. Once I've had one machined I will make sure it's durable enough without any sort of adhesive or fastener.
Was wondering my gear knob is a bit of s mess, could I go to breakers find a good condition one in a normal clio and just change the insert ?
