Is the CF Shifter shift pattern a replaceable insert?

Recommended Posts

Is the little round shift pattern on the CF shifter a replacement piece? Can you change from a 5-sp to 6-sp pattern or vice versa? It doesn't appear to be as I have tried to remove it with no success.

Mine was glued in. but if you are careful you can pry it out.

I popped mine it out from the bottom side using a long screwdriver but almost ruined it because the it was incased in the silver metal trim.

The trim is screwed into the knob, the screws are under the shift pattern.

I changed mine from a 6 speed to a 5 speed. I could not find the 5 speed pattern so I used the old stock one

if you find a place where I can find a CF 5 sp, let me know. I still have the 6 speed pattern. looks cool.

if I had to do it again, I would use a long small drill to poke a hole in the back side of the metal trim. then I would use the drill as a punch to tap out the pattern from the backside. The metal trim that holds the shift pattern is very thin on the backside.



good luck,


edit to add photos.

ps. looks like it was glued from the side.

you're welcome. not sure what type of CF shift knob you are looking at but here is a pic of mine. (thanks to member Phillipj)


the above pictures of the 6 speed shift pattern button can be popped out and replaced as I did, but finding a 5 speed CF shift pattern is another challange.

I paint filled the standard shift knob pattern then laquered it when I put it all together.

hope this helps or gives you other ideas.

It came off the original POS shift knob.

I pryed it out, used a dremel to grind the backside of the black plastic so it would fit flush. Then I glued it in place.

I then paint filled the shift pattern and lacquered it. I masked off the CF knob and boot.

The black shift pattern was the same diameter as the CF one, just not as nice.

here is the old shift knob (donor)
