    shift boot wont stay up on momo knob

    Anyone have any ideas besides a zip tie to get the stock boot to stay up on a momo knob... The only ideas people have given me make it look cheap.

    have you tried doing it from the inside? I installed an aftermarket boot as well as knob what i did was put the shift boot on but dont clip to the dash. put your knob on then pull the boot up over the knob (inside out) and use a small zip ti or metal zip ti like the ones for exhaust wrap around it then pull the boot back over and clip down your dash piece. it worked for me and looks how it should look "professionally done" hope this helps any questions pm me.

    I actually got the boot to sit right after a few tries with alittle elbow grease. It was a pain in the ass but I got it. Thanks Though.

    Take the threaded cone cover to a machine shop and have them shave or wear a quarter inch, maybe a half from the top. Then screw it, now you have a space for the boot to grip; try in 2 ways.

    With the shifter panel off and boot in position, screw the cover tightly. Maybe add the zip tie to avoid the cover to unscrew from vibration.

    The other way means more work. With the boot down, screw the cover tightly. Then use a bit of dishwashing liquid to lubricate the cover and the top of the boot. Now work the boot till it goes on the space. This is the best fit if you don't plan on removing it for a long time.
