shift boot installation guide

Looking for a Jeep Compass shift boot? We offer the best ones out there!


1. You will need a G20 Torx screwdriver, cleaner, glue and a brush. Any good leather/upholstery glue you can find at a hardware store will do. Just follow the instructions on the glue container and everything will work fine. Our customers have often used Elmers Glue or Amazing Goop with satisfactory results but really - your nearest hardware store will be the best source.

Open the armrest to reveal the torx screws on the underside. Remove the four visible Torx screws for the black plastic cover using a T20 Torx screwdriver, and place them safely off to the side.

2. Once the four Torx screws are removed, you can separate the black plastic cover from the armrest assembly by pulling it down.

3. After the black plastic cover is removed, the last three remaining Torx screws are exposed. These screws mount the armrest to the center console hinge.

4. Clean the surface of your armrest with alcohol to make sure the glue bonds well.

Test-fit the cover on the armrest to make sure you understand how it fits on the amrest before you proceed with glueing!

Once you are sure you can align it well, place leather cover upside down on a table. Using a brush apply glue to it, leaving about 2 inches from the edges of the cover glue-less.

Align the armrest inside the cover carefully, make sure to do it quickly before the glue sets. Once you are sure you aligned it well, let the glue cure.

Proceed the glue the edges carefully, one by one - apply glue to the remaining part of cover next to it's edge, press it tightly to the armrest base and let the glue cure before proceeding to the next edge.

5. Reverse steps 1 through 3 to reinstall the armrest in the car.


Useful tip

You have installed a product made out of genuine leather. As you know, to maintain a leather product in good condition, you should take care of it. We suggest occasionally (every 4-6 week for example) applying some leather conditioner/UV protector to keep your leather from drying up in the sun and cracking.
