Knob Fallen Off!

Got a bit of an embarrasing problem. My knob falls off - the gear knob on my 2004 Scudo 2.0 Jtd that is. Is this a common problem with these vans - I bough mine at just under 3 years old and it was loose then. The hole has got a bit bigger and I need to do something as it's really sloppy now. (Sounds like a line from a Carry On.)

Option 1 - get a lever and knob from breaker - how easy is it to remove the lever from the dash?

Option 2 - get a universal knob from Ebay or similar. Has anyone done this? Which ones fit?

Any advice appreciated as this is embarrasing.    roll

Re: Knob Fallen Off!

I would be interested in recomendations too.

My own has degraded with age and is cracked with bits falling off!  smile

Re: Knob Fallen Off!

Hi Woodbine

I’ve just recently swapped the boot (mine was very tatty) and the knob too. I went for the universal option from eBay.

It came with three inner sleeves, one fit nicely, and tightens with three small grub screws. What you don’t get is the neat factory fit between boot and knob. That doesn’t bother me and I’m happy with my £16 investment for the two (the knob was a tenner)

I’ll drop a pic below  smile

Re: Knob Fallen Off!

Thanks for your reply, AB_70. Problem is, I think our vans are slightly different. Mine's a 2004 2.0 Jtd. I'm guessing yours is maybe a 1.9 or poss of a different year.

My reverse gear is hard to the left then forward - yours is right and backwards. But the biggest problem may be the little ring under the knob that I have to lift to allow it to go over, into reverse. I don't see this on yours - so thinking your model doesn't have this. There's very little of the metal shaft sticking out when the knob is removed to get a new knob on, and I think a non standard knob will stop the ring moving. (Jeez did I just say that - oooh Matron!!!   smile    )

Thanks for the info, but I don't think it's going to be so easy.

I've had four of these vans - both Peugeot and Citroen - and never had that - never had to play with any ring, and reverse has always been below 5th (which almost bit me in the ass after I got used to driving a car with 6 gears!)

So sounds like a Fiat thing

Ahhh! And also, haha haha!

You’re correct, my knob doesn’t have a ring to lift, you just need a firm grip smile

Hope you find a solution !

Re: Knob Fallen Off!

AB_70 - thanks again. Yes, I can imagine after being used to driving a 6 speed car, going for 6th gear in your van could be quite spectacular and very expensive. Not for the faint-hearted!

Think I may have to bodge my gear knob as I can't see anything non standard fitting because of the reverse gate ring. May have to enlarge the hole a bit to accept a short lenth of plastic 15mm Speedfit pipe or something. Then carefully Araldite - making sure the glue doesn't get near the ring or reverse may not be possible any more.
