just a quick question, i ordered the civic type R gunmetal shiftknob off of ebay (dark grey with red lettering)and although it fits my shifter, the letters are facing the wrong direction...anyone know how to fix this?
i've tried like 8 times...rotating it a bit different each time...i've got a polished short shifter, that probably has something to do with it..although my stock leather GSR knob fit just fine and faced the correct position when fully tightned
yeah it did...and this is going to sound really stupid but how extactly do you use that bolt? i just screwed it on all the way down to the bottom of the thread to keep my shift boot from falling.. how do you use it to keep the lettering facing the correct direction
yeah,i had the same problem with my type r shift knob, jus put the nut there. i have a quick question, while were on the topic of talking about shift knobs... i have a DC sport short shifter, and i was wondering how can i keep the shift boot up, because the stock boot stops like a few inches under the knob, and theres this gap between the knob and boot, and i was wondering what can you do to keep the boot up, because the neck of the shifter isn't as wide as the stock one.
thanx GSR guy... and GSRboy, i'm having the same problem as you with that shiftboot staying up on my shortshifter.i was think about wrapping some masking tape around the shifter under the shiftboot that, that part of the shifter would be too wide for the shiftboot to slide down it. in theory that should work...oh well i'll find out tommrow. then i'll post pics
wrap your shifter (where you want the boot to stay) with black electrical tape...keep going till you have a ball of tape around the shifter a bit bigger then the opening of the boot..now squeeze the boot over the ball of tape and it should stay...
