Gearlever Rubber Gaiter

Hi can anybody tell me where I can get a decent Gearlever Rubber Gaiter from as I have fitted two in the last 12 months and they have both split after a short time.
Thanks, Bernard.

I bought mine from Bull Motif Spares. I can't remember how long ago but at least 2 or 3 years. No problem with it so far.
It wasn't expensive.

If you know any one that can sew and don't mind losing the original look get some thin leather/fake leather and make a taller one like modern cars.

Keep the split rubber one as it helps keep noise out, but sandwhich the base of the new one above the rubber but below the steel plate.
