Default C4 Auto Gear Knob Cracked & Replacement



lol. It's been a long time since I last check-in to the forum.

The gear knob came lose when I was engaging the reverse gear this morning. There's no way to repair it.

Fortunately plenty of sellers in TaoBao have it. I chose one that claims it's an authentic factory parts.

Going through user feedbacks, it seems a common problem where the gear knob doesn't last a couple of years. Installation is a simple matter of shafting it in, although one should make sure it is dead centre before you do it; not a good idea to twist and fine-tune afterwards.

Just S$11.98 excluding shipping home (via ezbuy economy air should cost $1.69)

The replacement gear knob is identical in every way to the stock gear knob. I guess it really is a genuine factory parts, or an extremely high quality knock-off. lol

I shall hunt for the switches to replace all the auto-window buttons. They are melting away. :-(

The shipping package weighs 210grams, in case anyone wants to know.

Looks good bro

2 year ago, my peugot 307cc gear knob also broke, the original replacement cost a lot. So in the end, I drove to Autobac/ Stamford tyre. cannot remember exactly which one and bought a generic one to fit, cost less then $30. it is a plain looking black leather knob but it serve it purpose.

Ha ha, a generic gear knob will work too, but I should confess one of the reason I bought the C4 is because I fell in love with the gear knob when I first saw it in the showroom. lol.

TaoBao is in Mandarin only. Beside, most of the sellers in TaoBao don't ship outside of China.

You might want to try AliExpress instead: https://goo.gl/lM7t9b
