    It does not look like the knob on a Le Car 2 turbo.

    Well in that case can anyone supply a pic of the floor where the gearstick mount bolts to the inside of the car?

    Yes and it is an Atmo gear knob - I have the same on my Turbo which I am replacing in during the resto. They are pretty rare.

    This car is really confusing me,i've got two of these gear levers with knobs that came with the car,and the floor just isn't made to take any of them?Going by what i've noticed so far it's an atmo chassis with a turbo engine.So why doesn't my floor take these gear sticks?Its a mystery!I feel a bit of metal cutting/grinding jiggery pokery coming on.

    All mk1 renault 5s had the same gear stick just different gear knobs. it should bolt to the floor with 3 M6 bolts just infront of the handbrake.

    I know what 'shiuld' be there but its not lol.One problem the two bolts that are adjacent to each other on the white plastic gear mount dont match the two holes in my floor, the two holes adjacent to each other on my floor are wider apart slightly, plus the other mount bolt hole jn my floor doesnt sit in a virtual triangle configuration to the other two, it sits way further back near the handbrake??
    Other problem is the large rubber grommet that sits in the hole in the floor the whole gearstick goes through is a fair bit larger than the hole in my floor?? Im totally confused.
