  1. Alfa Romeo GT gearknob change!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Howdy guys! After a lot of looking around, I found a full aluminum gear knob for my Alfa GT with the 6 speed manual silver scratchy knob. I have no idea where to start with the removal? Do I need to pull? Twist? Twist and Pull? I'm attaching some pictures to my find on eBay and the old one...
  2. Ooh er, how girthy is your knob (gearknob...)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My Brera came with a non-standard gearknob which while inoffensive I would ideally have the standard one. Prices for the proper one were a bit much for a little ‘nice to have’ but saw a replica on eBay. It’s arrived but it seems very small! Is anyone able to measure the girth of their knob...
  3. Alfa 166 new gearknob

    Alfa 164 & 166
    The gearknob in my 166 FL has come off, broken spindle I think. I guess i could fix it back on, but I keep telling myself it's a sign from the Gods that it needs to be replaced with one of these beauties: Schaltknauf Marano Nuovo Argento S - Alfa Romeo Shop - Tuning, Styling, Fanartikel und...

    The metal wrap on the gearknob is starting to come off around the central split, leaving a sharp edge. Any fixes?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Everyone, Just got hold of a 1999 spider to do up over the winter. The original gearknob has gone and has been replaced by an aftermarket pos that has fell to bits. Any recommendations for a replacement that fits the lusso black leather interior?

  8. GT gearknob 'sticky' with a clunk

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I don't think it'd make a difference, but for the record she's a 2008 GT Cloverleaf JTDm (150 version, originally). The gearstick has taken to being very stiff when moving forward across the gate (1st, 3rd and 5th), and reluctant to engage into the slot. Conversely, moving the stick backwards...

  11. Easy DIY gearknob refurb

    Alfa GTA
    So my gear knob was all scratched, and the leather was getting worn. The one's on alfisti.net are lovely but expensive, so I thought I'd have a go at making mine a bit smarter. I masked round the gearstick, and used fine emery paper to sand off the paint. The cap is actually metal so with a bit...
  12. Gearknob problems

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, The top of my gearknob has fallen off. I have bought a new top but the clips that's broken in the old one seems stuck where the top/clips are fixed. How do I get the two clips released? Have looked through all the threads around here regarding this subject without any luck - hope someone...
  13. Isotta Drake Gearknob for sale

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    This came on my GTV but wasn't to my taste and is in very good used condition with no marks, rips tears or wear on the leather - These are hard to find now and we're 50 quid+ new. This one is the Black leather and chrome finish. This came off my phase 2 GTV and was a good, neat fit. Based in...
  14. How to turn your manual Brera into a Ferrari (gearknob upgrade))

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    G'day Everyone! Right. Since I had such a hard time trying to find an aftermarket gearshift for my Brera, I decided i had to do a small project and document it for others that may be contemplating the same thing. I don't like the feel of the original Brera knob, I wasn't overly impressed with...
  15. GTV Gearknob Install

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've managed to find an original leather gearknob for my six speed GTV V6. There are loads of threads about removing stubborn GTV/Spider gearknobs, but I can't find anything about re-installing. My question is, will a dab of glue and firm (but respectful) thump with a mallet be ok to get the...

    Has anyone ever fitted one to a GT before and is the blackline/cloverleaf silver plastic gearknob a pain to remove? Cheers guys. Damien. Alfa Romeo Shop - Tuning, Styling, Fanartikel und Modellautos - Schaltknauf Biscione Nero S Schaltknauf 'Biscione Nero S' 54422

  18. Brera gearknob and inside door handle

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi gents Thinking of swapping out my gearknob for a Richbrook 'slanted top' one. Has anyone tried one; does it fit? Also would like to get a new inside door handle. Haven't found any on eBay. Looks like they can be swapped out with just the two screws? Is it as simple as that, or do other...

    The only bad part of my car as its worn a bit, I made the mistake of rubbing what I thought was some dirt and it made the gear knob worse. I just want a brand new one, I know they are around £75, just want to know if there are any recommendations as to where to get one? Any Alfa dealership I...
