    Here is what I did to replace the shift boot on my ’05 Aero. To begin, you should separate the shift knob from the reverse lockout. The reverse lockout clips to the shaft knob with three retaining clips. Insert three very small screwdrivers between the shift lock out and the knob. Xcelite...

    Hi all. I found how to do this on another forum and thought it may help some people out. The top of my gear knob was very worn and in places had worn through the layers of paint and copper all the way to the plastic so I decided to refurb it a little. Now I am pretty terrible when it comes to...

    I got a dashcam that in the dark films with infrared light. I noticed recently that the little knob on my dashboard becomes transparent when lit with that light and some square thingy appears underneath that "dome".

    I fixed my SID knob about 6 months ago and finally got around to making a video to show how it's done. It's super-simple and takes about 2 minutes. The problem I was having was that the display wouldn't change when I twisted the knob, or sometimes it would change but skip two or three settings...

    Hello all. I drive a 2004 9-3 2.2 TiD and gear knob keeps spontaneously jumping off. How is it supposed to attach? Does it need to be glued or am I missing a part that holds it in place? John
