166 3.0 V6 Orig. Lift-up reverse knob with Badge
OK, I just removed the little alfa badge on the gear shift knob, removed a little black blob of sillicone that held on the badge and found no screw there at all, just metal. Then i drank a Red Bull and used all the power that i could to pull the knob off but it was stuck rock solid! I guess i need special factory tools to remove it. So no point in buying a new one if i cant get off the old one.
For some time I'm anxiously trying to find the original knob with the badge for my 166 3.0 6-Speed Manual, 2001.
I *think* the 166 original knob with Alfa Badge is ePER 156021700 the "OpenWork Leather" model - can someone approve this info?? and if yes what is your local dealer charge for it?
as the ePER pops up several other numbers as well for my car - like the 156018054 etc.
so I'm not sure, not mentioning that google failed finding picture of it with webstores and actually find it at all...
I'm from Israel, and this part would have to be imported as 99.9% of the 166s here are 3.0 Sportronic and not manual,
Also, eBay doesn't currently offer an alternative for the past 3 months
And I don't like the MOMO knobs that some people have chosen as replacements...
Thanks in advance!
