Punto gearshift knob: how is it held on?

My post-1999 Punto gearshift knob keeps coming off in use and it's not obvious what it should be stopping it from doing this. Is there some sort of clip that's fallen off, or...? Thanks.

basicly an new one is hammered on, the plastic fins inside the knob deform too hold it on the shaft. if yours is coming off it means you need a new one, a very common fault.

Thanks very much UCM. Think I'll annoy the wife by fitting a really blinging replacement then. :-)
