Short Shifter Installation Instructions

 Step 1. Lift up square patch of carpet in 'cup holder' and remove the two screws.
 Step 2. Remove the two screws on both the Driver and Passenger sides.
 Step 3. Remove Ash Tray and remove the two screws.
 Step 4. Remove climate control knobs
 Step 5. Remove shift knob by rotating 'Anti-clockwise' or 'Counter-clockwise'
 Step 6. Remove the climate control/radio bezel and lay on drivers side. Be careful not to pull the wiring too hard that is attached.
 Step 7. remove the center console by first lifting up the front and manuvering it over the shifter and then the Emergency brake. This maybe a little tricky at first.
 Step 8. Remove the pin and linkage first, then remove the nut on the shifter and linkage.
 Step 9. Remove the four bolts that secure the shifter to the center tunnel
 Step 10. Loosen nuts just enough to remove linkage connections. Try not to loosen both sides as you want to keep the locations as close as possible.
 Step 11. If applicable Remove the Rubber bumpers off of the stock shifter and add to the Short Shifter.

ReInstall Short Shifter and reassemble in Reverse order. On Step 8 of reassembly, there are 3 settings that you can select, depending on how much throw you want to reduce. The top hole is the stock throw, Center hole is about 15% reduction in throw, and the bottom hole is about 30% reduction in throw.
*It is recommended that a threadlock be used once the setting has been selected to insure that the bolt does not work it's way loose in the future.
If you have issues with the linkage interfering when shifting, or are unable to shift into certain gears, you will need to adjust the linkage connections in Step 10 above.
