ok, I know it's hardly the most important thing to worry about, but here's a sheet of white-on-clear switch stickers that includes symbols for a heated windscreen and rear fog light of the right sort of size. You have to look very closely to tell it's stuck on rather than etched on like the original switches:

Great find Tilly.

However their delivery costs are pricey - £7.20 for something that costs £3.99!

Tell you what - if anyone else wants these, say so below, and I'll put a bulk order in and we can share out the delivery cost. I'll get them delivered to me and we can sort out distribution from then.

Well spotted Tim - I ordered mine sometime ago some other stuff so I didn't notice the postage costs.

Their delivery page though says that if you order by phone you can request Royal Mail delivery rather than courier to save postage - but it doesn't say what it would then be. It arrived sandwiched between two pieces of cardboard so it's only an A4 envelope's worth.

If you have to spend more money to justify the postage though (!) they do a good compact spare bulb and fuse kit to keep in the car (here)

You've got a Classic gearknob there Tilly! Surely you'll be needing the gearshift pattern sticker on your ashtray then?

That's a good idea Tim. I could have done with that the day I picked Tilly up - a fallen tree on a narrow B road near Yate meant doing a 3 point turn at a particular wide point. Could I find reverse? There was already quite a queue behind me as I got the Portuguese manual out of the glove box...

So Danbury put the classic knob on for you? At your request?

Personally I prefer the modern version - sits better in the hand.

(Cue loads of replies filled to the brim with innuendo.)

It's just the knob it came with - I assumed everyone had a knob like that! Is that not the case?

Nope - the standard gearknob looks like this:

Not being the driver i couldnt be 100% sure but i think we also have a plain one like Tilly. As you have an old van Tim i suspect it might be the case of us newer vans having the cheaper option as standard.

Should all be screw on - you wouldn't want your knob coming off at a tricky moment.

Sounds like the sort of thing worthy paying £4 for but not £11.20, so I'd be in.

Your knob looks just like mine, btw. I'll get my coat.

Just checked a photo of a 2011 Kombi. It's got the same gearknob as my '04 BraziBay.

The Great Gearknob Switch!

Very mysterious, and a little odd. I suggest we get scooby and his friends on to the great gearknob switch. They'll get to the bottom of it.

They'd have got away with it if it wasn't for those pesky Brazilian VW Bay.com kids.

We've yet to have a Kombi on here called Shaggy. Anyone? Keep it clean - it's a family show.

We have an 8 ball on our gearstick, it just screwed on. Got it from ebay from a guy that do pretty much any thread you want and has a list of the most common ones to choose from. We chose the 8 ball as it was always up to luck whether we got the right gear before we fitted the empi!

There is a thread called Lucky Balls that has some pics too Shocked
