|Anyone know of a recent DIY with pictures that work? The last one has pics from 2004 that I believe expired on the host server. Also, I'm not sure of the process yet, but I keep hearing about a brass ring that needs to get clipped. Does this need to get replaced later? Also, how does that affect the new knob? Can't it just pop off at any time?|
Yes it needs to get replaced. Use a hose clamp.
If you keep the rod the same length and use a VW knob, there shouldn't be any worry.
If you shorten it the knob won't have a groove to slid into, so it may twist around, just tighten that clamp down like mad and it should be sturdy enough.
