        5 2007 GT - CButler Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour


        This retainer fit perfect and was high quality. The threads were a bit damaged on my existing shift arm. But the retainer was solid enough that I was able to use it to thread past the damage and repair the shifter threads. Took about 5 minutes to install. I used a heavy zip tie to secure the new leather boot to the retainer, instead of the original rubber o-ring. It was far easier!

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

      • 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.

      Will this work with a MGW Shifter?

      how do you stretch that over the boot ?

      • The boot should fit snugly around the first part of the retainer, and may require some adjustment to install properly.

      • As long as your Mustang is 2005-2014 and has a manual transmission with a 12mm x 1.25 thread pattern shift handle, for the exception of the GT500, this will fit.

      Will this make my shift knob be a little more taller to be able to shift better?

      • These will raise the shift knob just a tad but nothing that is going to be very noticeable.
