Has anyone gone forward and switched out their Manual shift knob on a SE or S 2012 Focus? If so how did you finally detach the knob from the boot? Thanks in advance.
use a sight like imgur, and post your pics to it, and then use the photo link button to link to your imgur site.The clips are roughly in each corner, get em started and you can pop the ring upward. Pull the boot upwards inside out and spin off the knob. I installed the illuminated shift knob by gaslock offered by Ford. Look at your brochure for factory accessories. Once I figure out how to post pics I will do a write up. BTW I think one could run a die down the shifter threads and cut off the top of the stick. Poor mans short shifter lol I have the directions Ford sent me, I could fax them to someone from work.
It's best to shop by thread pitch as you'll come up with a ton more results. Nice stripe btw.In case anyone was wondering...
I was told by Chris over at Lathewerks that the 2012 Focus' thread size matches that of the STi. So, you can cross shop STi shift knobs too!
