Does anyone know if there is a difference between a MK4 Jetta/Golf shift knob and boot and a MK4 Beetle one? I can find fairly reasonably priced ones for a Jetta or Golf but its hard finding one for a beetle. Example Dorman Part #76810 If there not the same where would you suggest looking for one?

Thanks

I think the shifter knobs are probably similar but the boot, plus the base are probably different. A number of places used to sell chinese sourced replacement knobs, boot and the correct base, that snaps into place (fixmyvw). Now, on ebay, a number of places sell them from china; they are cheap enough you could give it a shot. It maybe possible to swap out the base, from a golf/jetta version and staple it in and there seems to be boots to can buy as well. Otherwise new from vw would be expensive, if they are still available or you could try to find a good used one, from a local junkyard or ebay.
