Re: got new shift knob, how to keep shift boot up

I had that same problem when I bought my car. I took off the whole front console so the shifter was exposed. I bought a large nut, bit enough to just slide over the shift bar with the knob removed. I found out where it needed to be to fit the boot over it and hold the boot up, flush with the knob. Then I drilled a hole in the nut, tapped in a screw to hold it tight against the shift rod, replaced the front console wi. boot, and the nut keeps the boot from falling down.

^^ zip tie on the shifter shaft (sounds dirty) before you put the boot on and you're set to go.

Re: got new shift knob, how to keep shift boot up

Boy I'm liking this site less and less. He wants a fix. Not to be told to live with a gap. The lock nut fron beneath is pretty genuis. Who ever said zip tie also wins althogh they were kidding. Cut the chrome trim offand tuck the rough edge of the vinyl in to the inside of the boot. Lift you console up, couple screws, really easy. Wrap a zip tie around the shifter and the boot and get it snug. Put the knob on, get the boot where it needs to be and tighten it down. It may still move under your power unless it tightens down on the threads. Then its there to stay! Good luck!

The boot just rests on top of the nut, and the knob pressures the boot between the nut and knob. works really well, The boot is held tight, it doesn't move, personally, I love it. Sure it's a farmer fix, but from the outside, it looks tight, way better than just letting it flop around. And if I had more time, I would tapped a thread into the hole, and screwed in a bolt instead of just a screw, but I was running out of time to finish. So yah, that's how I keep my boot from falling down. Hope it's helpful man.

Yah, the screw is what keeps the nut up. Metal piece....? I wouldn't know, this is how the boot was when I bought the car, except the nut wasn't on there so it kept falling down.

Re: got new shift knob, how to keep shift boot up

so does anyone have an answer for his question about what to do with the metal clip at the top of the boot?

Re: got new shift knob, how to keep shift boot up

wing081,
Are you refering to the plastic clip that is painted chrome? The thing that the stock shift knob connects to?
If so, then you can push it out. That is what I did with mine.
When you take the boot off, you can flip the boor upside down. Like this.


Then just cut off the fastener and slide out the clip.
