Ok, my question is odd, at least I think it is, so maybe you all won't... I duno. Ok, check this out. My shift boot is ragged and nasty, so I took it off to replace it. When I got it off, I noticed my shifter has this sort of... rubber-type... thing... around it, and I can get that to slide down off the top, but the top won't twist off so that I can replace the boot with a new one. I'm curious if anyone else has run into this issue? If so, can you give me some hints? I'm lost here. I can't force the boot down over the knob, it is way too big, so how do I install a damn new boot? Grr!
