Will silver ring from manual boot fit auto space...NEW PICS 1/19/2011 Last Post




Does anyone know if the silver ring at the bottom of the manual boot will fit into the same space in the auto panel. (Im going to get a custom boot made to fit my tsx leather knob, and may need this ring).

It looks like manual and auto use the same panels (part 15) from the diagram?




Thanks !!

Here you go of someone who has done it before:

Just curious, you had no problem installing the tsx shift knob?

WOW thanks.. thats great.

I had no problems installing the tsx knob and just followed the directions in this thread http://www.driveaccord.net/forums/showthread.php?t=35420.

It went much smoother than i expected.

I got the tsx accessory knob (perf leather) and love it. Its actually cheaper than the normal leather one and looks great.

Oh okay, glad my directions helped! The reason I thought there might have been an issue is because in the US, cars with the J-vin had a thicker shaft underneath the shift knob. Seeing you were from Australia (I think I am right), I thought you would have ran into the same issue. If not great!

Also here is another link to it with a TL shift knob (similar to TSX shift knob):

I Just realised now that you wrote that thread! Haha thanks so much it was very helpful. I did luck out a bit in that i didnt have to dremel the hole either. That 'problem' button is a bit shorter on my model. Perhaps the reason is the accords here are all made in Thailand.

Haha No problem. Wow you are very lucky! I wish it was a direct swap on the US Accords, oh well. I guess the location of assembly plays a huge role.

I went ahead and used the auto standard shift console, as it was too muc hassle/money getting either the 6-6 manual leather boot and trimming it down to size (the actual leather material not the base ring) , or getting a custom boot fabricated. I am more than happy how it looks though with the stock console shifter. I know this mod has already been completed by several on the forums, but just thought I will share some pics again as I love this mod and highly recommend it. This is the TSX 09 Accessory shift knob. The difference being that the standard one isnt perforated. Also, the accessory is actually cheaper than the normal one which was a plus.










Also picked up some 'mugen' neck cushions off Ebay and they are very good quality for a chinese ebay item.

Came out nice! I bet it matches your steering wheel well too. I would really like to get my e-brake wrapped in leather to match my shift knob and steering wheel. Have you looked into doing that?

Yes, surprisingly it matches the steering wheel perfectly and looks like it was done by the same person/shop. I looked into the e-brake at the time the steering wheel was done and the shop said the labour involved would push the price up to almost the same, despite less material being used. (The wheel was 220, and e-brake 180 quoted.) It wasn't worth it for such a small item for me. Instead, I bought an e-brake leather cover off ebay and am very happy with it.
