Not me though, I don't have a gear stick (auto!).
I found it useful, thanks Caskin. You're right, it's a hard pull to get the knob off, so without knowing how you had done it I'd have been a bit shy of using that effort in case I was going to break something. The replacement gaiter I got from Amazon for a fiver, looks very smart. And the slits were precut so fitting was quite easy.
I also used your advice to yank the blighter off, Although i did have some issues with the relacment gaiter bought off ebay, real leather thicker than original and slits cut in wrong place, was pig of a job. geve up in the enr refitted the old one

Replacing gaiter tip: when you tighten the cable-tie around the gaiter and gear-stick ensure that the lump in the cable-tie is at the bottom because if its at the top you will feel it with your finger-tips when your hand is on the gear-knob.
Yes, as daft as it sounds the gear knob is a force off, force on item. Lots of waggling and wrenching involved!
