I bought a similar knob and boot and went to fit it today however mine was totally different and its a 2001 and mrk 4 v golf. mine has a screw at the top with a little rubber clear protector and long black plastic covering that has a spring under, this is used to slot the car into reverse as it sits under first which presume everyone elses does aswell. so my point is that because of this plastic fitting the opening is much wider and does fit with this plastic thing on top but without it it doesn't work because I cant get the car into reverse so I don't know if I need a different type of fitting or if I'm missing something. anyone else with the same problem ands or a solution. help would be very much appreciated! thanks

I do yes but I did buy the part off an Australian website!! Anyway do you know where I can get one that fits my car??
FixMyVW.com by AARodriguez (9 месяцев назад)
I'm going to guess you live outside of the USA, likely Australia?
Reid Pierzinski (9 месяцев назад)
my leather and knob are all fine, my issue is the knob is turned and I want to turn it back to normal. Help? I just bought the car today and it was like this.

Hey, mind if I ask something? Im about to re-paint some of the interior parts, because the soft touch is scratched, but I dont know how to take the plastic thats around the shifter off. Not the whole console, but just the black plastic around the shifter that contains the ashtray too. I'm guessing lift the shift boot, remove the ashtray , get my fingers on the space around the shifter and pull towards me, but Im not sure if thats the way to go. If you can answer I'd be grateful.

Is it the same for a seat leon 1m? I mean the golf shifter knob also fits on the lseat leon ?
Jordan Moyer (1 год назад)
what if i just want to replace the knob.......
Evren (1 год назад)
If you look carefully at about 1:55. You can see that the replacement knob does not fit properly. The gear stick has special surface to get better grib (the original knob had perfect contact). It will not be as tight as original and it can get out. I wouldn't buy this part as replacement.

Thanks, nice tutorial! I just removed my old shifter and replaced it with a nice GTI shifter.

How do i remove the shift knob from the boot itself? Id like to get a custom knob but i cannot seem to separate the two AT ALL! I have the exact same car as you and hopefully you can be of help thanks
Fernando Hernandez (11 месяцев назад)
sailortrash55 were did you buy your shift knob and boot. I am having the same problem and I too want a custom shift knob
sailortrash55 (1 год назад)
Thanks, of course mine was the one that couldn't be taken apart so I bought a new shift boot and knob which I was able to separate this time.
Cody T (1 год назад)
I would hope you figured this out in the last 3 months but for anyone else, Grab some pliers and pull the plastic cylinder INSIDE the boot and the shift knob itself away from eachother, it holds the boot to the knob, and its just a well made pressure hold.
Nick Fury (1 год назад)
Hey Aaron. Looks like your replacement shift knob and boot don't mount as far down the stick as the factory one. Doesn't seem to clamp on the knarled area. Can you confirm this? Could the shift stick be cut down to accomidate this?
David Metzger (1 год назад)
I saw your video on YouTube, went to your website, and bought a shifter boot for my 2006 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5. It was at my door within a few days and the installation was a piece of cake. The black leather and shifter knob look primo in my whip. I'll be ordering other things in the near future. Much appreciated! Thanks.

Bacalu IRY (2 года назад)
nice job thx
Kenan Bakin (2 года назад)
It's not seated properly. I just watched this video before doing mine and I screwed it up because I used your video as a reference. Look at where your old knob was sitting and then look at how far down the new knob is (go to 1:11 then compare that to 1:51). It's not all the way seated to the bottom and once you squeeze that clamp you're screwed. You should really update this or put a comment in.
JK Kendall (6 месяцев назад)
Mine seated all the way down when I bopped it. 2002 VW Golf GLS TDI. Works great. My minor complaint is the nipper didn't open wide enough, but found my husband's larger nipper and that worked.

Did VW change the shift boot design for the 2015-16 model years? I have an MK 7 GTI. Is the MK 4 design too old to use on it? I find the shifter too small and actually grip it by the neck out of habit.

How do I install just the top gear Knob?
Gabriel Dibble (2 года назад)
Thanks, helped a lot. Unfortunately I did not have End Nipper Pliers but I used large wire cutters with much more effort to remove; it all worked out fine in the end. Your video provided the necessary guidance :)

Hey, I have bought a few products, but I was curious if you had any insight on upholstery. My driver side cloth material on my 04 mkIV is starting to "loose stickiness and it falls off exposing the orange insides, Im constantly shoving it back in, damaging the cloth. If you have any videos or DIY tricks I would be great appreciative. I love your simple products and fix its. bless up!

The $125 part he's referring to is the entire console below the ashtray. Read first. It usually helps ;)

I would say the gear selector or linkage
twane061 (4 года назад)
yes it will be good. :)
Gabriel Gagné (4 года назад)
not at all because the owner could of just change the shift knob and look like the car has not been beaten up when in reality it has.. I suggest taking the car to a garage and have it checked out. its worth the money trust me
