    Will this work with Mustangs that have the Interior Upgrade package from the factory?

    DocLu

    • As long as your Mustang is an 05-14, and the shifter came from the Ford factory while manufacturing the vehicle, then this will fit no problem.

    Will this fit a hurst short shifter? I drive a 08 GT

    frank147

    • Hi,This Shift Boot Retainer will not work with the Hurst shifters because of the handle shape this retainer is good with a stock handle or a aftermarket handle that is cylinder shaped not flat like the hurst shifters.

      Perfect fit!

      The 08 Mustang I just bought was missing this piece. Small parts like this make a big difference in the finish of the car! Easy to install and fit perfectly.

      Worth it

      I looked around for a shift boot retainer and while this one was more expensive it did what I wanted it to do and was worth the extra money.

      Screw on and tighten with wrench

      Pretty easy to put on. Looks great with pool ball style gear nobs. Only downside is paint can be scraped off with the wrench if you slip while installing. Be careful. I had to use touch up.

      Shift Boot Retainer

      Works great. Helps me change knobs for when I'm at the track and then I can remove it and put my factory knob on for the rest of the time.

      Works great

      I used it with a billiard ball shift knob. It looks great. It gets rid of the open top on the boot and gets rid of the lock nut .

      Pretty Good

      Very Tight fit so make sure if you use a wrench to install this that you put a cloth or something soft around it so you dont scratch the metal.

      Should Be Required Purchase

      This Shift Boot Retainer needs to be purchased with any of the shifting knob that you might purchase from AM. This small piece of machined steel finishes the "look". At this point, AM should just bundle the knob and the Shift Boot Retainer as a package deal otherwise you will get the knob and then be waiting another week before you can even install it.

      Great look

      I loved the way my car would have looked if the retainer had fit my car. It was disappointing after disassembling the factory shift knob off my GT 500 only to find that the retainer would not work. Although the title clearly states it is fit for the 11-14 GT 500 it did not work. I'm almost certain had it fit it would have been an excellent choice. The quality of the materials is heavy duty and durable.
