shift boot installation guide

Looking for a Honda Insight shift boot? We offer the best ones out there!

1. Unscrew shift knob by turning counterclockwise.

2. Remove two screws at the bottom of the center console from each side.

3. Using a pry tool, remove the clip at the front of the center console on each side.

4. Lift up the console from the rear to separate it from the car.

5. Remove the 4 bolts holding the shift boot frame to the console.

6. Using pliers, remove the 8 staples (2 per side) holding the original shift boot to the frame.

7. To install the new boot, press new staples through the old staple holes in the frame with pliers.

8. Ensure the shift boot is aligned to the correct side, as one is longer than the other. With the shift boot aligned and pulled against the frame, press the staples through the new boot, using the pliers if necessary. Fold the staples over to secure the boot.

9. Reinstall the boot in the center console bracket.

10. Reinstall everything in reverse order of removal.



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.
