I just bought a shift boot from ebay and it kinds just looks like a funnell with a whole at the top. I have no idea how to install it or how to take the gear shift knob off or anything. I know i will have to staple it at the bottom to the little rectangular thing. Any help will be much appreciated.
Thanks

There's a crimp clamp around the shift lever that holds the knob on. Cutting this off will remove the knob (I used a small worm-drive hose clamp to reattach).

There will be a black ring that holds the boot to the knob; using a screwdriver will help pry this off (I did, carefully). But once that's off, the boot can be removed, and the new one installed. Jsut make sure everything lines up properly and is positioned correctly before putting the collar back on. :)
