Citroen Xsara Picasso gear shift knob replace

17.03.2014

My Xsara Picasso's gear shift knob started to peel off the upper layer which was ugly, annoyed me and caused cuts on my hand.

So I bought an aftermarket gear shift knob which fits to original "leather" cover's upper mounting diameter.

I had to cut a few centimeters of the original shifting rod so my new knob fits with cover length correctly.

Besides, a shorter rood looks nicer to me. To get it even more stylish I've also added a custom made plexiglass light pipe illuminated by the LEDs. LEDs are connected in series with 470 ohm resistor to provide a suitable voltage. They are powered from the passenger's front window switch so the gear knob is illuminated when car is in ignition II and run mode.
