Important!! Please read the entire install guide twice before starting your installation. No really, it’s a good idea to read it twice before you begin so everything goes smooth.

    • The outer collar is made from anodized aluminum.

    • The inner sleeve is machined from stainless steel.

    • The elastic rubber retaining band holds the collar to your shift boot.

  2. Since this is a universal part, you will need to remove the shift boot from your console and remove the stock collar. Fold the shift boot inside out and slide the collar all the way in until it comes out the other end.

    • Once you have the sleeve in place, stretch the elastic band around the fabric, securing it to the boot.

    • You should use the elastic band included with the collar kit. Some factory cars use thin zip-ties to secure the fabric but these are bulky and can wear the outside of the boot quickly.

  3. After you have the boot collar secured to the fabric, remove the inner sleeve from the collar.  Slide the boot and collar down onto the shift rod. Thread the stainless steel sleeve onto the rod. Once you have your shift knob threaded on, use a wrench to tighten the stainless steel sleeve against the knob, locking it into place.
