Installing the Momo shift **** for autos

Most people will say why the hell are you changing the shift **** on an auto? Because I like the way the damn thing looks. Oh well. This DIY is mainly made for one person *cough* Buzz *cough* because most people will be able to do this in less than 10 minutes.

Let's start.

Begin by pulling down on the silver collar on the stock shift ****

Remove the paperclip looking thing from the stock shift **** and pull straight up

Next, if you are installing the Momo ****, remove the silver collar from the shift boot. It looks stupid if you leave it on.

Then, unscrew the bottom silver part of the Momo **** from the top and put it on the the shifter first.

Then, put on the Momo ****. This will take a few minutes to find the perfect place in which the button will be pushed down only when you want it to be, and not being pushed down at all times. Should be pretty easy

Then, using the supplied screws and allen wrench, tighten the **** down. DO NOT TIGHTEN TOO TIGHT, you will put holes in the shift mechanism. Not a big deal, but just a word of caution. Just tighten enough so that the **** does not move and that the silver collar fits over the screws.

Screw the silver collar back on, and there you have it, your new shifter



The height is about the same as the stock ****, and it feels great. Button engages perfectly each time.

Thanks for reading.
