I have these two tops for sale - AMG & Blue Laurel Roadster designs.

These will fit many models, but please note: these are just under 29mm in diameter, some gearshift knobs are 25mm, so please double-check.

Of course, they can be trimmed (I have done two), or the holding rings can be widened to accommodate 29mm.

I'd be happy to provide detailed instructions as to how to get the handle apart, if required.

£17 each delivered, or £30 if you want both.

This is how it looks on a gearshift (not for sale, just a sample):

I've been asked a couple of times, so perhaps it's better to put it here:

Almost all modern Mercedes gearshift knobs are essentially the same.

If yours looks similar to the one pictured above, then you can fit the new badge.

You might have to widen the holding ring from 25.8mm to 28.8mm - I have done that, and it only requires a steady hand and some precision - nothing complicated.
Alternatively, the badge itself can be trimmed down to size - depends what process you're more comfortable with.


To take the gearshift handle knob apart, you would need a glue gun, and a [dent removal type] lever handle, something like this:

I. The top badge is fixed with a double-sided tape, and is the only part of the process, that's not immediately apparent.

II. Apply a drop of hot glue on top of the badge, and affix the lever, making sure it is upright. Once dry, pull up, steadily and without twisting, until the badge disengage. Once removed from the gear knob, and the glue is at the room temperature, a few drops of pure ethyl alcohol will lift the hot glue residue without any trace whatsoever (give it a second or two to react, carefully separate the lever from the badge, then roll the glue off with your finger - do not use any tools).

III. After that, it is pretty straightforward: unscrew the central screw, remove the holding ring.
If you only want to replace the badge, nothing further is required.

However, you can proceed further disassembling the handle, should you wish to update the leather, or 'metal' parts - these are actually a metal-coated plastic - please keep that in mind when handling them.

Here's my gearshift handle after leather re-trim:

Here's a better picture with all the bits, including the holding ring:

Holding ring painted after widening, and badges lacquered (same types, but not the ones I have for sale now - these were spares).

Here's another pic of the gearshift parts, gives a better idea of what its components look like half-assembled:

Hope this is useful :)

Right, these are still available - see the first post :)

I've been asked - yes, I can take your gearshift apart, and also can fit one of these, but I don't think it would be cost-effective for someone to send the gearshift handle over and pay to get it done - it really is as simple as in the above pictures.
