Alko Jockey Wheel Knob


Recommended Posts

The red knob on my Alko Jockey Wheel - as fitted to year 2000 Corniche 17/3 has come adrift because the collar which goes on to the metal shat has split - presumably frost damage.

 

The knob pushes on - it is not of the type with a push out insert and a spring washer.

 

The local Swift dealer cannot help nor can Alko.

 

The only suggestion I have had from them both is to buy a new jockey wheel, column and handle at a cost of around £50 - this seems a bit much to replace a knob which should only cost £1 or so.

 

Has anyone any bright ideas?

Sorry can't help - my porn filter deleted your message (shat, knob, collar. ...)
