*** Shifter Knob Swap - Have a Problem - Need Help please ***
Need a little help please...
Has anyone put a 2011-2012 stock original equipment 5.0 manual shifter knob on a 2013-2014 V6???
There is a 1.25 inch stem (or pedestal) that is attached to the bottom of the 2011-2012 stock shift knob that does not appear to be able to be removed. When the 2011-2012 is installed on a 2013-2014 it leaves a pretty big gap between the base of the stem that is attached to the stock 2011-2012 5.0 shift knob and the top of the black plastic disc that is at the top of the 2013-2014 shifter boot.
The original 2013-2014 shift knob is about the size of a quarter or a 50 cent piece. The base of the 2011-2012 stem that is attached to the bottom of shift knob is about the size of a dime, and the opening at the top of the shifter boot on the 2011-2012 is about the size of a dime.
The piece that is sold by American Muscle and other companies is made to take up the gap from an aftermarket shift knob that does not have the stem/pedestal attached to it like the original stock Ford one does.
I need a solution to take up the gap between the large 50 cent piece size black plastic disk that is at the top of the shifter boot on the 2013-2014 to the base of the dime size stem on the bottom of the original equipment Ford 5.0 2011-2012 shift knob.
Does anyone have a solution for this please?
