  • The drilled sleeve slips over the original shift lever then the complete assembly screws into the thread on the lever.

Due to the many variations in monitors and browsers as well as the wood grain and natural shade variations, product images may appear different on different monitors. Computer monitors are not all calibrated equally and colour reproduction on the internet is not precise. Since it is not possible to guarantee our products will look the same on all computers, we do not guarantee that what you see accurately portrays the colour of the actual product.
