Shift Boot Install

Has anyone replaced a shift boot on a base prelude and been successful in keeping the factory square chrome ring?

I purchased a silver stitched boot and I would like keep the stock shift knob.

Good walkthrough:

Re: Shift Boot Install

The collar is held on to the stock shift boot with a zip tie. Turn it inside out, snip the tie, and, the collar will come free. Install the collar in your new shift boot, and, fasten with a new zip tie.

If the square collar won't fit in the boot, you could modify the top of the new boot to fit the square collar, or, what I did; switch to a round SH shift knob and collar.

Re: Shift Boot Install

Zip tie for sure.

I used a black rubber table leg cap from a big box store with the center removed. I used a factory square using a method like Sir spoke of, but later opted for the black look.

Junkyards with accords and civics are a good source as the shift knobs are the same and boots very similar. Practice parts.


The table leg cap mod.

Re: Shift Boot Install

Thanks guys. I'm going to give it a shot this Sunday.

I want to maintain the stock square shift knob. I've owned quite a few late 80s early 90s Hondas and they all had the same square shift knob. I already installed the silver stitched leather armrest cover. This silver stitch shift boot should complete the interior look I'm going for.

Pictures to come.
