Default Phase 2 S40/V40 Manual Gearknob Replacement

As requested by Volvo2002, here is a miniguide of how to remove the gearknob. This is for a Phase 2 S40. Older gearknobs differ and the procedure is different.
Hope this miniguide helps a few people.

So here we go:

First of all, lift up and remove the rubber MAT



Unclip these 2 clips (by pushing both of them inwards) and lift the plastic base



You will need to gently unclip the four clips pointed by the yellow arrows. The lower two bits pointed by the green arrow are not clips, but just holding the lot together. A lot of people have broken some of this clips by trying to unclip it from that end.



You need to push in this clip as well as the one on the other side at the same time and gently push down the gaiter and the its plastic ring. I used by leatherman to press the lower part of these clips. Any large pliers will do too



Close up of the clips. You need to push the lower bit, as the top part needs to be releases



Push the gaiter with the plastic ring downwards (yellow arrow) and then use a flat blade screwdriver to lift the clip pointed by the green arrow. There is one more clip on the other side, so you will need to use another screwdriver. While lifting both clips a tiny bit outwards, just lift the gearknob



and you are done



Close up of the gearknob and the gearknob stick

Very useful, although I did this blind recently, just giving everything a bit of a clean, and it's not hard to dismantle at all!

Replacing, on the other hand, is a bit of a fiddle!

All we need now is a definitive guide to replacing the 'top left' reverse knob with the sleeve.
