I am not understanding what you want? Do you want the momo shift knob from the factory because they make it for both the automatic and manual shifters. If not then why would you want an automatic shifter for your car anyways?
This is a discussion on Manual Shift Knob question within the Interior Mods forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; I have a MOMO shift knob installed in my car it is not the one offered by Subaru but does ...
I have a MOMO shift knob installed in my car it is not the one offered by Subaru but does any manufacturer make an A/M shift knob for the Subaru that has the leather boot clip that comes with the the stock version.
Ok here we go again, I have a 5 spd Manual, I have an aftermarket MOMO shift knob. Now is there a way I can have the stock leather boot to clip onto the aftermarket Knob or do most people just leave it hanging like me?
O ok now I see what your asking. There might be some creative way to hold the boot up but normally there should be a little lip that the boot pulls up and over to stay up. If there is no lip to hold the boot up I would look into a creative way to hold it up, get a new knob with a lib, or simply let the boot dangle.
BTW the momo shift knob from the dealer has the lip. Maybe take a picture and we can help think of a way to hold the boot to the knob.
Ok here' is a pic, notice the leather doesn't stick to the bottom of the shift knob, I want to know if anyone else has bought an after market knob what they have done to fix this problem...any help I would appreciate.
looks to me like you could take it apart and stick some washers or something in there to help fill the gap..
i used a zip tie, just turn the boot, inside out and tie the zip tie around the neck pinching the boot against the lip of the knob.
Quick and dirty fix, zip ties as mentioned, or even some fat rubber bands wrapped several times around the shifter. If you use rubber bands, you don't even have to take off the boot. Just slide it down, wrap the bands, then the neck of the boot should squeeze past the bands, then you can bunch up the rubber so it doesn't slip back down

I have a MOMO knob and e-brake handle, I understand about the lip and will use a zip-tie. But I need images or instructions on how to dissasemble the console to do the job.
So, a little help?
There's no secret to installing these things... they are universal and have adapters. Momo has part reference charts for our car and everything fits great.
