auto gear stick

Postby chrislloydie » Sat Jun 28, 2008 2:55 pm

Hi all,

Does anyone know if you can shorten the Auto gear stick? I know you can remove it and how to remove it, but I find it too high and would prefer it to be a bit shorter.

Has anyone done this or heard of anyone doing this to their auto gear stick?

Cheers .

Why do you think t's too long? Never heard anybody about this and I've never had any problems with it.

Don't think it would be wise to attempt it as it would possibly have a negative effect when selling the car later on.

It just is too long for my personal preference. I have driven several other make autos and they had shorter gear sticks and i prefered them. maybe my arms are just too long for the one in my meg. lol

That's true, it is long compared to for example a BMW auto gear stick.

Perhaps you can find a way of mounting the stick from another Renault model that's shorter?

buy another one from the scrappys or ebay and cut it down to the size you like and swap it over. then if you ever sell you can pop the original one back on.

I might do as you suggest Deano, Just not sure if there will be any problems in shortening it. I wouldn't have thought so. Not sure as to whats inside the stick, will have to take mine off and have a peek about.
