If you have a manual the info you want is in this video. It's about 1 minute in.

I got a shifter boot from DSV Customs. Now I know how to put it on. Thanks!

Can you post some pics of your boot? Did you get just the leather piece, or does it include the plastic 'frame' that snaps into the console?

I watched the MGW video but it was still a beotch to get off!!!

Just pull and wiggle it like a teenage bitch and then it will pop right off and smack you in the chin and you will see stars and Farrah Fawcett

lmfao. I did the barton and when I was jerking on the thing that was the only thing I could think of happening. I actually thought I was gonna end up punching the rear view off the window or something stupid like that. I have *THAT* kind of luck. Everything worked out though.

I bought the Barton SS/RS pistol grip handle and I love it. I watched their video but I still had a heck of a time getting the old shifter knob off. I actually gave up the first time I tried it and got a couple of big screw drivers to pry it off. Before of boogering anything up with the screw drivers I decided to get in the drivers seat on my knees and I pulled like heck and it finally popped off.

After you gently pull up and remove the silver trim and gauges you remove the 4 screws holding the boot down then twist and pull on the shift knob while trying to not knock yourself out. I found it helps to get a large screw driver and a wrench and use it to pry it up a bit. Then it pops right off.
