Gear lever splitting

So the knob part of my gear stick seems to be splitting in half (as in the top is coming away) on my Puma, not heard of this happening to anyone else.

Guess I will be on the look out for a replacement...

It's been reported here few times before. Bad thing is stick and knob are one piece, so you can’t just unscrew knob and replace that alone. Genuine part number is UKJ500100PMA, very expensive. Maybe worth checking if you can find one at a breaker?

This inexplicably happened to mine. The head itself cracked into three or four pieces. I got a replacement on ebay > 110 XS Double Cab

Isn't it the same stick as a transit?

Transit lever seems different.

Wondering if while I'm changing the lever it might be woth fitting a slickshift?

Very happy with the way it functions now but wondering what all the fuss is about?

Don't supppose anyone in the Cornwall area has one fitted to a Puma for a comparison ?

If you did go that far you may as well stick the spacers in too, they might help improve things too. Made In GB. 🇬🇧

Watts ÷ Volts = Amps.
Amps X Volts = Watts

Thanks

Paid £20 for my replacement gearstick from ebay. I would definitely recommend a short shifter. I have the shift-r, really nice positive satisfying mechanical clunk and shortened throw > 110 XS Double Cab

Also went for the shift R - changed the lever for a leather one would let the original go for £30 posted

Thanks for all the feed back. Not aware of the Shift-r, is it the same priciple just by a different company or are there merits to one over the other.

Thanks for the offer of the replacement stick, Think I have one locally but if that fall through I will be in touch.
