    momo shift knob/ stock shifter boot question

    I know this has probably been answered somewhere but I couldn't find it...is there any way to change out the stock shift knob and keep the stock shifter boot? I bought the momo all leather air race shift knob but want to keep the stock boot? Is this possible and if so, how do I do it? Thanks for any help.

    The shift knob just screws off the top, keeping the shift boot in there. Then screw in the Momo one and your done. It took me about 2 minutes

    I tried just screwing the knob off but it wouldn't work...I took off the panels and it looks like the boot and knob are connected. If it makes a difference I have an 03 wrx...maybe it's easier in the other body styles

    No, they are not attached. I also have an 03. It will unscrew, somtimes they are just a bit tight.

    Give it a slight tug. The shifter has a groove in it, the top of the boot is elastic, you've got to pull it out of the groove. A good tug, and it'll pop right off.
    Those fools, EVO vs. STi??? That's like comparing ....wait a minute...there's no comparison. The Suby's still working!!! The evo...well... I hope he got the extended warranty.

    IMO, this is one of the best choices of shift knobs.

    ok un-thread old one. tighten new one one pull boot over threads. now for added trick if you find a better boot. glue a small custum part of pvc pipe and use a "C" clip on the threaded part of the knob. instant clean look!
