Re: type sh shift knob

if it is similar to the fourth gen knob all u have to do is slide the plastic piece that holds the boot to the knob down down. (it has a clip in the front and back) u can use something to pop it over the clips like a flathead screwdriver. than just unscrew the knob. remember the boot should slide down with the piece that clips to the knob, or you may have to take out the console to put it back correctly. *if you have trouble just search for a short shifter install thread and follow the first few removal steps.

There is an adapter from what I remember but it's custom. Generally people usually let the boot sag or replace the shift boot with something that has a ring around it. Either way, the shift boot is suppose to sag with an aftermarket knob.
