  1. Gen1 Service Issues
    I'm sure this has been covered but I don't know how to search this site. I need to change my Manual shift knob on my 2012 Cruze. YouTube has a few videos showing people just twisting the old one off, sometimes with the help of a pipe wrench. I used the pipe wrench to get it spinning but could...

    Hey everyone! Just picked up a 2016 Cruze LS manual transmission. And honestly I have never thought about changing the shift knob. But looking at these after market okay I kinda wanna do it. Is there any tips or tricks I can use to take it off? I tried turning counter clockwise and it didn’t...

    Spending a lot of time behind the wheel of this Cruze. Almost 13K miles in 7 months. Plenty of likes and dislikes. One of the dislikes is that enormous gear shift knob. I've done some Googles but can't find any suppliers. I get it that's it's not an easy swap due to the reverse engagement...

    So, I got a first gen 2011 Cruze Eco, with 6spd auto gearstick that has faded over time, and is in dire need for an upgrade. My first problem is that the knob has a button (for reverse or getting it out of park), and I fear if I twist it, I'll mess it up. Not sure if I need to twist it, or...

    The people at BrakeMax say their computers show GM no longer makes the gearshift knob for the 2012 Cruze. Mine is breaking and I would like to replace it. Is this true, that GM is no longer making certain parts for a car that is only five years old? I can't be the only one whose knob is...

    Not affiliated with the seller. Long story short, nothing is preventing me from using the stock shifter, it's just really worn over time so when the chrome accent peals off it'll cut up my hand. Since I had a screw on knob and not a press fit, I looked and read as much as I could on the...

    I have reviewed a few threads where this problem has not been resolved. I have tugged on it while turning it left/right and it does not budge at all. Trying to remove the console, which is impossible without getting the shifter plate off. Not entirely sure why it is so important for GM to make...

    Hello, I have had my Cruze for 2 years and never had a problem. Tonight the car would not go into park. It freely shifts between D, R and N. It stops at R and won't push up into Park. This happened 2 weeks ago and I fiddled with it until it eventually went into park but this time it just...

    I was planning to switch out the shift knob on my 2017 Cruze LT standard, but noticed that to put it in reverse there is a button to push. Has anyone figured out how to change the shift knob on because of that button? I wanted to get more of a ball instead of the stock shift knob but I'm not...

    Hi friends. I've an issue with my Chevy Cruze. I bought a second hand car and the lights ON are anoying for me. I turn the knob all to the left to the OFF position and the system automatically turns ON the light (only the headlights, not the interior lights). My knob doesn't have the...

    I have a 2014 Cruze 2LT. it only has about 12k miles on it and I purchased it about 1 year ago. The stitching on the steering wheel and the shift knob are starting to fall apart. Would issues like these be covered under warranty or am I going to be told to take a hike by my dealer. I have had...

    Is there any way to replace the stock shift knob with one that has lights on the numbers and R? I really want to add that extra glow at night or in the dark from my shift knob.

    Hello, My Cruze's shift knob will not move into PARK after it's placed in R, N, D, etc. I am able to move it between R and N and D, but once I want to place it back into Park the shift knob will lock and will not go higher than Reverse. My workaround for this has been to place the car in...
