Installed. Trashed the old gaiter removing the base which may not be typical. Fully glued on unlike the F10. Did not glue but fastened the leather back onto itself underneath using carpet (gaffa) tape. Cut generous holes for the clips and it went on a dream.
Removing old gear knob. I put the car in second and sat in the back with my legs either side of the transmission tunnel. No problem getting enough leverage from there.
