1. Remove your old shift knob by turning it counter clockwise and disconnect it from the leather by pulling.

2. Place the leather strap holder on the already installed shifter bolt, and push it down. Make sure that the leather strap holder is pointing up. (Meaning the cylindrical part is pointing upward as in the picture above.) Then connect the leather by lifting the leather up in between the two circles of the leather strap holder.
Note:The leather is pretty hard to get between the two circles of the leather strap holder so be patient and work with it, you will get it eventually.

3. (Optional)You should have a small nut that was included in your parts, this is to adjust the height of your shift knob by making it higher. I personally left the nut off because I like the shift knob lower but you can do it however you like. Place the nut on the bolt and spin clockwise till it reaches the bottom.

4. Install the new retro shifter on the bolt by placing it on the top and spinning clockwise till it reaches the bottom.

5. And you’re finished!
