Do you have the red or the black?
Only the black had publishing saying it would not fit. But, it was myself that proved it fit. It is the same gear knob, purely with a different colour.

Maybe the pull bit wasn't positioned right when you put the new knob on?

Bare in mind that, even if there is an issue, Abzynthe was only trying to help and took time out to do so.
He has nothing to do with whoever the OP bought the gear knob from. There was no misleading going on - he offered information on his experience, its up to each individual what they do with that info.

Sounds as though someone has a malfunctioning knob :o

We cant be 100% sure, but all the parts on service box for the gearbox are exactly the same.

I am happy to volunteer my gear knob to any facelift HDis at the meet in May for a test fit.

As previously mentioned in another thread. The gear knob is a push fit and there are no threads.

I dont think its a good idea to keep pulling the thing off.. i always thought that there would be a thread involved.. plastic o r whtever.. and these things are really meant to fitted once and once only.. i just wonder why pug saying it doesnt fit the hdi.. we all have 6 speed boxes and gates are the same? lOOKS LIKE IT IS THE COLLAR THAT IS THE PROB


The way it's designed means you could pull it on and off 50 times and it would still fit as snug as the first time , we fit loads of this design , so don't worry about that :beer:

Did you purchase the gear knob from us (please PM me with your invoice number if so)?

If so then we know what part code you were sent (a direct RCZ 'R' replacement which is Red), if not what part code did you order?

As mentioned, it was only the black insert unit that had mention of not being compatible with the RCZ HDi, but these have been installed and tested and fully functional.

We are not aware that the transmission has changed in any way in regards to the gear lever in Phase I and Phase II RCZ's.

We await your response so that we can fully understand the situation.

All that I can say, is that I tried it on Abz HDi and loved the feel and it works perfectly :eusa-think:

We have the Group Buy going on through to the 10 May 2014 and so after the Yorkshire Meet you and others can add their name to the list. We hope that during the meet the issue reported here is rectified and so we hope to get feedback on the findings.

After working with the customer we believe the problem has been solved as we have not heard from them in a while, and their is nothing wrong with the gear knob.
