Here's the before trim....6 scratches :-)
just get your fingers under there, and pull towards you evenly from L to R, then there's a clip that slides from R to left.
Oh what a difference
Ok, are you ready?
Pull that button out, very easy.
then, slide a zip tie up and under the button, there's a notch, get it in there and pull it secure. this is important.
OK, then open the ashtray, and from the rear of the shifter trim plate, slip your fingers under there and pull up...up it comes, now pull that sucka up over the knob...twist and turn a little to get it past.
OK, now get a flathead in that devil clamp and twist like Chubby Checker.
Can you pull up?
No, you can't; and here's why.....
the end of the shifter knob, has 4 little notches that hold it onto the ring that the boot is attached to....
You'll need to push the end together so the shaft of the knob can pass thru that ring ....then pull up as you do that....take it easy.....
then I used a super duper zip tie to secure, the width was identical to the width of the channel where the clamp was...I trimmed it down a little more, it was biting into the boot
And now, ladies and pic whores........
