6Speed Gear Knob For Tsport Corolla

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Had a quick search through and couldn't find anything related to my question (unless my choice of search words weren't that good so sorry if a repeat question!)

I am looking at purchasing a 6 speed gear knob to replace my curent 6 speed in my corolla Tsport as the red reverse selection on it is tarnished and annoying me. I have found a 6 speed knob (same as mine) but its for a corolla verso so i was wondering if anyone knows if they are the same and word fit in my 2003 53 plate tsport corolla (has the reverse option but this one isn't red but thats ok!)

thanks for your help

A few people have repaired them with great detail, they pop up on ebay from time to time

Im in the same boat and want another gear knob cause of the chrome flaking off. If all is wrong with yours is a tarnished reversed letter I'll take it off your hands :thumbsup:

If you don't want to wrap, (other choices besides CF) then strip the chrome of, and re-paint. Someone on here has done that, looks good.

TSportVirgin! that looks really good. I have also found someone who sells the gear knob with LED lighting underneath so it lights up red at night and is connected to the cigar lighter. Looks really cool with the 6 speed and reverse all correctly setup and glows red at night. sweet.

LOL LOL LOL by chance today i decided to take the flaking chrome off my gear lever, and paint it black. Glad I did because £100 at least for a gear knob is an absolute joke!

I haven't heard of wrapping a gear knob before, where would I get that done or is it diy?

Why has someone changed my comments when I asked a question. Isn't it normal for a forum moderator to answer and not edit/delete a posters comments as part of a constitution/guidelines?

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
