Well i fitted a new gearnob on my astra. The one uve got looks like its the appropriate type, lift up reverse. Otherwise you would be unable to select reverse.

I think most vauxhalls have the same set up.

1. Grip the gearshaft and turn the nob anitclockwise. This takes a bit of effort but it should come loose in the end.

2. Once uve poped the old one of, you'll notice a green plastic part attached to the metal of the gearshaft. The only way to get this off is by using a hacksaw. Sounds daunting but it comes off rather easily.

3. The gear nob should come with a set of universal spacer rings (for all makes and models of cars). Put on the appropriate ring, push the gear nob on and tighten with a grub screw.

Hey presto a shiney new gearnob.


Hope this tutorial helps, sorry no pictures. Its quite simple really.

I cut mine, made it a lot easier. If you look it has four indentations. Cut along these with a stanley knife or something and it will pull off a hell of a lot easier

Silver, it's much easier to change the whole stick. In fact reading that, there is no effort involved :D
