Automatic Shift Knob, 1998 Audi A4


I broke the top of my automatic gear shift. The mechanism still works, but the plastic inner core of my gear shift is exposed (a skinny, white plastic tube that can be pulled up to shift into D, R etc). I would like to replace the shift knob, but I don’t know where to buy an automatic gear shift knob (must have a button to maket the mechanism work) or how to install a knob once I find a shift knob that works. I am on a tight budget, but I would love to get this problem fixed. Thanks.

I’m sure your Audi dealer can sell you the part you need, but it’ll probably be expensive.

If this were my car I’d try find the parts I needed on a similar A4 in a junk yard.
