Re: gear knob and gaiter

i enquired about a new gaitor on my stilo as the original had torn. was about 25 and would be easy to fit (if your confident enought to dismantle the plastic around it!)

Gaiter is easy enough and I had to do that very early on with mine as fumes were coming in. A zip up the side so no need to remove the gearknob

Gear knob removal though needs a strong puller like this but i'm sure you could make up something similar

I had to do a simular thing, then had to cut all the rubber of my old one and make the metal sleave fit in my new gear knob
