shift boot installation guide

Looking for a BMW 4 shift boot? We offer the best ones out there!


1. Gently pry on corners of shift boot there are multiple clips which pop loose.

2. After pulling up the boot you should be able to see the cable pictured.

3. Disconnect this it is the cable to supply power for the lights on the shift knob. Now grab the shift knob and pull up. Be careful it is very tight and will come off suddenly. Don’t be afraid to pull hard this takes a lot of force.

4. Cut off the old boot right under the shift knob (make sure you don't get the cables cut!) using a rectractable blade or an x-acto knife.

Take the boot to a working area. Peel it off the plastic frame.

5. Test-fit RedlineGoods boot around frame, and glue it on. Automotive GOOP, 3M Super 77 and other glues will work great - any epoxy glue will do in fact. Just make sure to take your time, check the curing instructions on the glue container and make sure to not get any glue on the outside of the boot.

6. Flip the RedlineGoods boot inside-out and slide the shift knob assembly into the collar of the RedlineGoods boot.

Use a zip-tie to secure the boot to the shift knob assembly (put the zip-tie head on the front of the vehicle so that it's not visible to driver or passenger.

7. You want the top of the boot zip-tied around the white silver collar found underneath your shift knob. We are showing the shift knob removed, but you should never try to separate them as you will damage the shift knob.

8. Push the shift knob assembly back on the shifter - reconnect the cable.

9. Push the bottom frame back into place to secure the bottom of the boot in the center console.



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.
