Shift boot sagging

Recommended Posts

With an aftermarket shift knob, what do you do to keep your boot held up? AM knobs are obviously a lot shorter than the stock one.

heres what i did.

 

first remove the knob, and the shifter console. Next get some regular ol carboard, wrap it around the shifter a couple of times, and very tightly duct tape it. then put the console back on and make it so the shift boot "O" ring sits on top of the carboard, then screw back on the shifter

Hrmm, I always thought that was how it was supposed to be. Never owned any car where the boot firmly connected with the knob. (that sounds pretty kinky if you ask me :wink: )

Cory, I love your thinking! I'm pretty picky about stuff sometimes and I think the boot drooped down looks retarded, at least for my preferences. I was going to say it looked ghetto then I was like wait, I'm using cardboard and duct tape to fix it >_< .

But I like the idea!

 

Mike, you have any Viagra lying around? Most of us here work properly! :thumbsup:

You could always just go to the hardware store and buy a rubber O ring or washer with an ID that is slightly smaller than the shifter stem and wedge it down over the shifter. That should hold the boot ring up.

 

Less duct tape involved too... not to bash, Cory. Yours is a legit idea.

ALso wrap a couple wraps of electrical tape around o-ring so it dont slide down at all! :thumbsup:

:drool: Not relevant, but I knew you all would find this amusing... first time I came across one of airjordan's postings, I tried to wipe the gnat off of my monitor. LOL!
