  • Squeaky 120 series range selector boot / removing selector knob

    The boot around the low/high range selector boot on my 120 Series squeaks like a mad thing and drives me mad. I can stop it by holding the selector to stop it vibrating. I can change the squeak by twisting the neck of the boot around - but it soon reverts to normal squeaking.

    I have tried squirting WD40 and silicon lube between the shaft and the neck, but this has resulted in absolutely no change.

    It might be easier to attack the problem if I could get the knob off - anyone know how it comes-off ?

    It just unscrews - lefty loosey - righty tighty...

    My 120 squeaks a bit from the gear levers, I just use some leather conditioner on the leather boot and it goes away for a while.

      Thanks Adrian, I hope I've solved the problem just by unscrewing it 2 turns so it doesn't clamp down so tight on the collar of the boot. Fingers crossed.
