Shift Knob Leather Boot

Hi does anybody know how i can take the boot bag out from the sifter?? i just bought a new knob but it seems that the bag doesnt go down low enough to screw the knob in.. the top of the boot keeps getting in the way

do i have to take the whole middle console out to get it out or just the round casing around the boot??

thanks!!!

yes the center console has to come out to take the boot out since its screwed into the underside. Also redline goods makes custom replacements that look good. I would wanted to have no shift boot, its not going to look good. What shift knob did you buy that doesn't fit?

well i bought a ralliart shift knob but the threads are way high in the shift knob and its kind long soo the threads dont reach down to be able to screw it on so i was wondering if i could lower the boot itself...

but theres a knot that blocks it from going down lower, is there a way i can get it lower or should i just buy a new boot?

i was also thinking of just getting a short shifter how do i go about doing that??

I have a cheap ebay short shifter, assuming you have a regular GSR model, wont work with a MR. The problem with the stock shifter is there is a weight on the top part not allowing you to lower the boot and more. once you get the center console off you can see what i mean. new boot could fix your problem though. Short shifter is a great idea, just make sure you get the base bushings too. must have!

well actually i have the 06 SE model iono if that makes a difference but yeah can you recommend some great short shifters and exactly what i need for it?? ive been wanting one for a while now and i guess instructions on how to install it would really help if its difficult

but yeah theres a weight blocker there is there also any way to get that off once i take the console off or should i just buy the short shifter in general to replace it??
