Shift Boot Replacement

Well it is time to replace my OEM shift boot and I'm reaching out to you guys to see if there are any associated "while you're in there" items to do.

I would consider checking the shifter shaft. If original, chances are it needs replacing.

Shifter - Only944.com

Check out the animated gif on the page above that shows the ware on the shaft that can occur.

You can get your new shifter boot from only944 as well.

I am considering changing mine as well, and I am leaning toward the kit from Only944.com - Porsche 944 Parts

I replaced the insulation, bearing, inner boot and outer leather boot as well.

Do it completely and you won't be sorry.

ordered everything, inner boot, shift boot, shifter after I got power back following hurricane Irma. It was the first thing I did - not sure what that says about my priorities!

^^^Thanks
So I did the job but never actually drove the car. Drove it for the first time yesterday. The knob twists too much for my liking. Spoke to Kyle at only944.com and he confirms that this happens as the factory rubber bushings over time shrinks a bit. Kyle suggested I "fatten" up the shifter bushings with some black electrical tape. I inserted a piece rubber from an old inner tube between the shifter and the rubber bushing. That seems to have reduced the twisting play to an acceptable level.

There's a fix for that - 944shifter.com
