Lift reverse = screw off
Non-lift reverse = I don't know Gear stick with knob removed Gear knob and lift reverse sleeve Inside of gear knob (I can't get a good pic but there is a thread there, trust me!) Lift reverse sleeve removed. You can drive without it but makes changing into 6th a bit dangerous

If you guys think that pulling the knob is something a girl can do with one hand just breaking a sweat, you're wrong.
Either twist a bit until it dislocks, then pull, but I did not manage on the GTA gearknob, just on the GT one, or use a rubber hammer to slightly beat up the knob. The second solution is better for me, the first one got me a black eye, but put a bag over the knob so you don't lose the spring for the reverse when the knob pops out.

GT.Clover 170 Q2

Ok im giving up, ive pulled, twisted, yanked!! so decided to recondition the leather knob i have, used a great black leather pigment spray. Prised the stainless centre gear guide off gently from the inside, with a flat head screw driver. Stripped the dull grey paint off along with the scratches. And will spray it a nice bright silver tomorrow once the primer has dried. Will post some pics when im done.

At the same time I fitted a set of DRL into the bottom grill, the grill is great for allowing flush fitting as you can cut the exact shape with a pair of wire cutters gotta say they look the D,sBs all I need now is to wire them in anyone know what colour the Fog light or side light wire is that leads into the headlight unit ?
Hi.....did you ever get around to putting DRLs In? Was thinking of doing this as cheap as chips on eBay and the grill below the indicator is an ideal spot...
