    Hi all,

    So decided to change the gear knob in my CL9 Exec model today.

    I bought the Type-S gaiter so I could replace my current one for when I change the gear knob.

    Job was a bit of a b*tch as the gear gaiter doesn't mount in the same place, so I had to keep the original frame for the gear gaiter + use the new gear gaiter.

    Change the gaiters over was a pain, but I won't be doing it again! :Whistle:

    Also, the gear knob doesn't line up when fully on, so had to bodge it with a nut from B&Q for now, anybody know where I can get a M10 sized retaining nut that's shaped better?

    What shaped M10 nut are you after ? Hex nuts are all the same shape lol

    You could perhaps round off the edges yourself by filing them down and make it look smooth.

    I know they are the same shape, but aftermarket gear knobs usually give you another nut with the gear knob.

    I've ordered one from eBay that should do the job.

    Think I prefer the original one, it looks more at home.
