The hole is not wide enough for the lift up reverse to slide into and there's no other way to fit it. So now I have a mangled bit of plastic for a gear knob until this guy replies to me to let me know if they do a wider one.
Anyone got any suggestions where else I might be able to get one from please.[/QUOTE
i'm no expert, ok?, but from tooling around on ebay i know for a fact that the majority of gear knobs are NOT SUITABLE FOR LIFT UP TO REVERSE GEARBOXES!
i have to say too that almost every one has has an advisory about this, you must have found one of the few that does not
bad news is that the one you got cannot be adapted to work either, you have toget one specifically designed to fit and work with your lift to reverse g/box, sorry to give you news you likely don't want to hear
you may be lucky, the seller you bought from may have a lift up version, or be able to obtain one for you. most will accept returns in a case like this, less postage of course, and you pay the return postage too. check the site you bought it from to see if they had the advisory?
while you wait for the seller to get back to you, have a browse and look out for the lift up type. i can't swear to it, but one site, carparts, does both types i think.
pity about that, will you be able to drive the car?
