Re: Gear stick

Not sure of question here. Are you asking to change the gearknob???

If so the best way is to hacksaw it off.

https://www.fiatforum.com/showthread...light=gearknob

This guide will help you for some of it. Remember this is for a lift up reverse gearknob and not sure if this is the system used in a MK2 but it will give you some idea.

If changing you will need the OMP adaptor IIRC or else it wont go on.

Universal gearstick - a gearstick that fits any car if its compatible i.e. lift up reverse, non lift up reverse etc. Its usually just the knob that is universal rather than the stick itself.

Re: Gear stick
