Attention: If you have a 2013 and newer Mustang, please make sure to check your stock box before installing Our Barton Short Throw Shifter. There has been a minor change in the stock box. Not every 2013 and newer vehicle has this change.

Once you have un-installed your stock shifter and before you begin to install the Barton Short Throw Shifter, please measure from the flat surface on the top of your box, to the top of your reverse lockout. The New box design will measure 2 inches in height as shown in the photo. (Old box height is 1.800 inches).

After you have taken the measurement and if the height of your reverse lockout is 2 Inches, you need to turn your OEM handle 180 degree’s. Completely remove screw on side of handle, Rotate your handle 180 degree’s. Then slightly push down on the handle, and re-install screw. Make sure to fully remove the screw before rotating the handle to prevent the screw from marking the sleeve on the shaft. After rotating 180 degree’s it will put the 2013 mark to the driver’s side of the vehicle facing the reverse lockout. As shown in the photo.

Any questions, please call (607-863-4757) Mon-Fri, 7am-5pm est. Or Email [email protected] WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR PURCHASE.
