    Installed Momo Shiftknob BUT...

    I installed the Momo shiftknob that matches so well with the WRX but now my shiftboot just hangs loose. Before it was sort of connected to the shiftknob but now it sort of is just sitting there and doesn't look as professional as the stock look was. Is there any way to fix this short of wrapping duct tape around the metal part of the shifter to thicken it or something.

    You could buy the small piece that holds it up, or your could use a rubber band.

    wrap the shaft of the shifter rod with electric tape. Then put a little piece of double stick tape around it- automotive grade, either a pinkish red or black. Then jimmy the old boot up over it and it should stick. Thats what i did.

    Thumbs up Search Nasioc for "Paulie momo adapter"

    It not only makes the knob fit tight on the shifter so the screws NEVER come loose but you can also use your stock shift knob and it is as good or better than it fits on the OEM knob!!

    BIG thumbs up to "Paulie" for designing this adapter!

    thanks for the tips

    ill probably try the electric tape method since i really dont want to bother too much with it. im almost happy enough with it hanging loose but i might as well try to fix it with what i have handy

    if it doesnt work out ill look into the piece Paulie made, hopefully it doesnt cost much to have sent over

    i bought a rubber washer from home depot.. something like 3/99 cents. I could look if i have the other 2 and send you one. it works perfectly and holds up the boot.

    I left the aluminum screw-on ring off of the bottom, and shoved the boot right up under the knob. It has stayed tight since last winter, and rides up a bit higher than the other suggestions, instead of hanging in the console.

    Take a look at a photo on the web page in my sig, or in the "Pics of your shift knob" thread.

    I have used the several rubberband technique with much success

    BTW: AJ, don't tell me you got a free Momo knob too!

    Yep! This is what I did. Looks factory and holds very well.
