    Well you can get new knobs in either Black, Blue or Red and I think Grey too. Shocked :whome:

    Last time I bought a 4 speed momo for a BA they were $350.....cheaper to get a new dog I reckon. Great

    Why? Barra only cost me $180.00, so plus $350 for new knob... a lab with papers is $800.00 - $1000.00, so I still in credit...
    Might get my one recovered... in ORANGE leather.. Idea Idea

    Sorry TOH, I hadn't thought of him, Thank You for taking me seriously (unlike our male counterparts Rolling Eyes )
    Well, I am now seriously looking, it was raining on Thursday night & I left Barra in the cab..... Rolling Eyes (I should have stopped & thought about it, but I was still in a drug infused haze). When I got back.... 5 mins tops.... knob only a plastic inner piece & windscreen wiper turny bit gone.
    I managed to drive home, only problem was how to get the gear gate open to get the vehicle into reverse????? After a ciggie & putting the offending dog (who for some reason wouldn't look at me) inside. Rang my special 0800FPVTECH Helpline, serious discussion over 10 minutes & we had it sorted. Fortunately for me I had purchased myself a TOP OF THE LINE POWERBUILT TOOL SET. Flat head screw driver number two (second to largest one) is now my gear know button. It is also a very good vehicle security device, as when it is removed after parking in my driveway, there is no way the ute can reverse. Windscreen wipers still work, I just can't adjust the speed on the first click setting..

    It must be a damn nuisance for you all the same. Can you get your wiper mechanism fixed?

    It gets even better. On Saturday afternoon, while cleaning the inside & outside of the Ute, I found the gear knob button!! Uneaten!!
    Inserted said button into the correct place & I can now Park, reverse etc just like a real one.

    With many thanks to FORDACE, I have just now installed a new knob ( Lucky I have my very own PowerBuilt Tools c/w carry case).
    It is a plastic one for now, as my Wonderful FORD Parts Supplier didn't have any leather cover ones (not even in ORANGE), but it looks & feel a whole lot better than the Barra chewed one I have had for the last three plus weeks.
    This forum has been wonderful, as I could contact a fellow forum junky & recieve the knob ( Embarassed ) the day before I expected it... Cool Cool Cool :lol2:
