    Never Satisfied
    Automatic Transmission Part #: PTR57-35170
    Manual Transmission Part #: PTR57-35171

    Saw a thread on here discussing this part but none of them actually installed on a non- 2016/2017 vechicle.

    The part does not fit 2nd gen Tacomas as there is a plastic locking piece on the bottom, that my 2010 trd off-road's shift boot would not accept. Cost me $160 from the dealer, which is way too much but I needed a new one and this is the best looking knob I could find.

    Here is my old ripped shift knob

    1. Remove the center console by removing the following screws and bolts.

    always have a safe place to store your nuts/bolts so you dont lose them!17474100_10154332941470965_811588016_o.jpg



    2. Dremel the plastic chrome piece like so:

    I created a makeshift locking mechanism to accept the new knob, underneath the lip I have a groove dremeled to allowing the locking studs to twist after they go through the cut slots.

    3. Paint

    Now put the console back together, screw on the shift knob and lock it to the boot.
    *may require and O-ring or tape on the stick itself to support the boot, mine did not.

    Finished product
