Don't know if you can still get it - thread locking compound.
:doh: Yeah, the white blastic bit should be attached to the inside of the metal bit... Its the plastic bit thats threaded.belcher said:It's not threaded though. The knob seems to just be a push fit over a plastic spindle part on the top of the gear stick. Maybe the white plastic bit is the part that is normally screwed on, but has come away from the inside of the knob. If somebody has replaced their gearknob, please tell me how it fits normally. Surely just a pushfit is not right :banghead:
Err, no. I've unscrewed mine before now, with the white collar remaining firmly attached inside the 'alloy' bit...MattL said:its a pushfit there are small clips inside the handle which are supposed to hold it on.
I had exactly the same problem after some "enthusiastic" gear changes in my ZS180. I eventually cured it by hitting the top of the gear knob with a piece of wood until the gearknob (which has a projecting bit on underside) slotted into the gearstick which has a white plastic slot in it. It clicked into place and had no probs since.Scarlet Fever said:ZR and TF gear knobs are screw threaded.
ZS and ZT gear knobs are push fit.
My old ZS 180 used to suffer from 'detatching knob syndrome', my dealership cured it under warrantee, i have no idea how, but when the car was returned the gear knob had developed a flat spot in the silicone dome over the gate graphic (so i suspect that part of what they did involved hitting it very hard!)
