Re: gear knob + hand brake handle

Gearknob is an ass to remove - its permanently and very strongly press-fitted, and to remove it you have 3 choices:
- hammer it out
- cut it out
- use a tool which is basically a fork on the threaded bar to pry the knob off

As far as I know, there is no separate hand brake "handle" on Pandas, the whole handbrake lever is single integral piece.

Re: gear knob + hand brake handle

would it not also be a problem that the Panda has a lifting collar for the reverse? I know in the past it's been an issue on other cars vauxhall, vag stuff

Re: gear knob + hand brake handle

Richbrook have knobs that specifically made for fitting with lift reverse. Not sure if it will fit Panda one well though - may just look out of place. Thats why personally I've preferred the OEM leather knob.

Why not get a nice Momo knob? Richbrook ones look very tacky.

Re: gear knob + hand brake handle

had look on momo web site the only lift reverse ones are dif colour alloy which is gd but with black leather which wont match anything on the 100hp dash where as the titanium richbrook is basically same colour as the 100hp air vent surrounds and climate control LCD screens

It's a car mate, not a tracksuit! Don't worry about getting something that's exactly the same. Just go for a Momo one, they look much much better.

Re: gear knob + hand brake handle

If you are going to change the gear knob and you want metal, then it has to be titanium as per standard fit in my DC2.

Blong, blong!
