Hello there.

My `57 CR-V`s gearlever gaiter is looking a bit worn, infact it has a hole on the upper surface.

I`ve found a replacement gaiter (leather) but need some direction on how to gain access to change the gaiter.

I`ve had a quick search but nothing came up.

Has anybody managed to get the gearlever surround off?

Thaks in advance, Simon.

I'm afraid I haven't but mine's also badly worn and is on my list of things to do, so will be keen to see what the suggestions are - I'd imagine it'd involve taking the plastic trim off and releasing the gaiter from behind?

Well,

It took about half an hour to fit all in. Once the climate panel is off (use a broad knife as opposed to a screwdriver to lever it out) it really is quite easy.

The hardest part was securing the base of the gaiter to the surround but even that wasn`t too difficult.

So, for a fraction of the cost Honda wanted for a plastic gaiter (plus surround which I didn`t need) I now have a nice leather one.
