Hi,

Does anyone know the correct procedure for removing the gear knob from a C3 Picasso please?

Mine doesn't want to budge!

Thanks,

Hi

I think you could have the one where you twist the gear knob 90 degrees counter-clockwise and you will feel a click. Then you can lift it up to remove the knob from the stick. It all takes a bit of effort.

Disconnect the gaiter surround first, because its attached to the gear knob.

Great, thanks.

So basically twist the gear knob anticlockwise (it's very stiff / hard to turn at the moment) until the click and then pull straight up?
