Google link worked in seconds for me.

Guess you've tightened it up now?

You need to remove the silver plastic cover on the top and you will see a nut that needs to be tightened.

Nothing worse than a wobbly knob.

There is a bolt under the cap. It just need to be re torqued

sorry to hijack thread, but does anyone know if a Giulietta knob will fit the 159? I only ask as I've seen an "aftermarket" one I quite like the look of but it's listed as only fitting the Giulietta. From what I can see, it is also done up with a 10mm nut and the giulietta also has the pull release thing for selecting reverse......
