    Hi All,

    If anyone has an original stainless gear knob for sale then please get in touch with me as they appear to be less common than something a rocking horse does.

    Alternatively if anyone knows of an aftermarket part (screw on as oppose to the cheap grub screw variety) that would do the job then I'd be grateful to hear about it.

    Many thanks in advance.
    John

    Hi Tunedtimer,

    I'm happy to pay any shipping costs plus the cost of the part if you'd be prepared to ship it to England. Many thanks for your reply either way :)

    Hi John,
    Try the breakers of these four Copens to see if they have the standard gear knob.
    Phone them rather than using the online messenger.

    http://www.partshark.co.uk/used-car-parts-breaking-vehicles/daihatsu/copen

    The photo posted by tunedtimer is of the Daihatsu accessory gear knob for the Copen.
    The standard gear knob was prone to scratching over the years. However they can be brought back to a nice polished finish with some Autosol & elbow grease.
    Keep an eye on eBay they do appear from time to time.

    I paid @ £65 for the accessory gear knob from Daihatsu three years ago ( sorry I'm keeping the old chrome one). Contact your nearest ex-Daihatsu dealer to order one.
    This was the price June 2012:
    99901092M2016 ALLOY GEARKNOB M/T: COPEN £63.25+vat

    Or if you have really deep pockets you can order it from here.

    I'd also be interested in one with postage to Australia if anyone has one available?
