Hi all

Might sound like a strange one but I recently bought a 2008 automatic antara and car is in great condition apart from the gear knob!! is well worn and leather falling off etc and really want to change it as its the only thing letting the car down, problem is I can't find a replacement, theres plenty manual ones out there but no autos! it doesn't have to be a like for like, just something thats going to fit.
Any help appreciated

That's a shame because there were some nice coloured one maybe try amazon then does it have to be an actual Antara one can it not be a generic one, if you know what I mean

It doesn't have to be an actual antara one but because its an automatic knob with the trigger theres not much that universal fitting ones if you know what I mean. I have had an email from vauxhall so I can get a brand new one but it'll be £91
bit much for a gear knob lol but probably best choice at the moment
thanks again fo the help

I tried local scrappies etc. I ended up with a Corsa D one for £10 so was willing to throw it in the bin if my attempt failed. I had to heavily modify the internals though. TBH if you are not seriously handy with mechanicals I wouldn't attempt this. Now that it's fitted and working it looks fantastic but took me 2 days to manufacture.
