For Sale: Custom cut/rethreaded short shifter

I have a stock shifter cut down and re-threaded to look shorter. I had this on my 2002 Focus before I sold it. It should fit any 2002.5+ Foci.




Location: Appleton, Wisconsin
Asking Price: $20 shipped

I'm not sure because I never measured and I don't have a stock one to compare it to. It's quite a bit shorter though. I cut it to a good height for me.

Not too hard at all. I was also unfamiliar with it and it took me less than 30 mins.

Copied and pasted from FJ:
Quote:
I believe 05 is the same as previous years up until 2002.5

The whole process should be 15 minutes.

(going by memory)

1. untwist stock shift knob.
2. pop off shift boot.
3. (4) 8mm bolts secure the mounting plate. Loosen and remove.
4. (1) Phillips screw holding shift linkage on to the shaft. Loose and remove.
5. Pop off the linkage cable and remove reverse lock-out from shaft.
6. Remove Shaft
7. Screw the plate down.
8. Reinstall in the reverse order.

That's the part that connects to the linkage. You slide it on the shifter and connect it to the linkage.

Is this still for sale?

Side question though; is the re-thread the same as the stock thread? I've got a Saleen knob on my stock one now, just wanted to know if it would still fit.

Yup, I've still got it. And the re-thread is the same as stock too so you will be fine.
