Instructions for installing Razo RA89 Manual Look-a-Like Automatic Shift Knob.
Parts I Used:
- Razo RA89 Automatic Shift Knob ($61 shipped off eBay)(eBay Seller: CarBeyondStore)
- “JDM Type R Replica” Suede Boot w/ Red Stitching ($12 shipped off eBay)(eBay Seller: CosmoDynamic)
Drive an auto? Hate how it looks? Well stop hearing your friends tell you that your a “ricer” and you need to do a 5spd swap. This is the answer.
- PH2 Screw Driver (Philips Head #2)
- Small Flat Head Screw Driver
- Shift Boot
- Razo RA89 Automatic Shift Knob w/ All the set screws/things it comes with
Remove the panel that surrounds the automatic shifter using the small flathead screw driver.
Using the PH2 Screw Driver, remove the TWO screws on both sides of the OEM Shift Knob.
You’ll be left with something like this:
Install the Shift Boot, lining up the edges of the shift boot to the edges of the shifter and place the reference sticker sent with the Razo Shift Knob on the place where the Razo shift knob rests on top of the shifters WITHOUT pushing down on the actual knob.
After wards, install the “collar” that is shipped with the shift knob. (i know the image is missing the shiftboot and the reference line, this was the only picture i had showing the collar on the shifter shaft)
Then after wards, install the bottom end of the shift know and the middle section thats hidden within the shift knob (use the two SMALLER set screws sent)
Place the spring on top of the inner piece thats held on the shaft with the set screws. Then place the Razo Upper Shift Knob on top of the entire enclosure and screw both halves together. Then re-install the panel surrounding the shifter and now your done.
*It’ll take some trial and error to get the reference line JUST right so that there isnt any tension pushing down on the inner shaft when the two halves are screwed together. If there is tension, your ignition will NOT let go of your key so take your time. It’s trial and error. Also, the center piece that centers the inner shaft in reference to the outer shaft can move around. Either hot glue gun it down, or use some duct tape to secure it down. Make sure the hot glue does NOT get on the inner shaft.
