I have a very worn original grey wood effect gear knob. Do you know where I can purchase a similar replacement? Thanks

Hello Dean,

Hi Dean,

 

Best foot forward is to try and find your part number on Toyota EPC, not the easiest thing to do but gets easier with use.  Only real challenge is the part varies depending on the wood finish (if any) you have in your vehicle.


toyota.epc-data.com

 

Once you've found it, best to order from Amayama or Partsouq on line, will take a while but even with shipping will be alot cheaper than sourcing through a local Toyota dealer.  Amayama are Japanese but do have services in the UAE, Partsouq are UAE based.

 

The alternative assuming the wood is OK is to consider getting it smart repaired, there are people out there now that can refurbish (essentially they sand, fill and respray) leather wheels and gear levers.  Be cheaper than replacing it I expect.

 

By all accounts it's not uncommon for people on the shipping boats to nick the gearknobs off of these things, why you see alot of them imported with aftermarket gearknobs on them, I don't understand why but it happens!

 

Hope that helps.
