Pricey Shift Boot Alternative


Recommended Posts

I searched and wasn't sure if this had been covered before. Apologies is it has been.

 

I was in the throes of making a new console with the non-broken parts left behind (thanks PO!), and one issue I encountered was that the little lip that holds the shift boot on was missing from the trim piece with the shifter hole in it (along with the shift boot itself). I wasn't sure if the OEM shift boot (25111206289) would work without that plastic lip on the trim, and I didn't want to gamble $60 to find out, so I measured what I needed and searched on amazon for something similar. I found quite a few but this one for a Yamaha Rhino seemed to be closest to OEM size:

It has extra rubber on the bottom and a retaining clip which is very easily trimmed with scissors, and once installed I gotta say, it fits pretty much perfectly. There's a rubber plate on the bottom that I pointed forward, and that sandwiches between the carpet and trim panel and holds it very securely. The hole at the top is the perfect size to grab the stick, so you can position it high or low and it will stay. It's also thick rubber and feels heavy duty, but if it ever does wear out, it's readily available and was $14 delivered the next day! Pics below show fitment. Also it looks kinda dusty and that's because it is. It arrived a normal rubber color, it's just been moved around my garage a lot lately.

It’s installed by inserting it up through the console opening?

 

Yep, mine was missing the ring/lip. I doubt it would work if you used that ring since it already fits very snugly between the boot's bottom accordion and rubber base plate. It fits very snug. Even trying to wiggle it manually further than the shifter would ever pull it is unsuccessful. It's solid as a rock inside that panel opening.
