How To Install Fox Body Mustang Shifter

  1. First you'll want to unscrew your shift knob.
  2. Then you'll need to remove the shifter bezel/boot assembly. Just pull up on the bezel and the clips will pop the bezel out.
  3. After you remove the bolts you may need a prybar to persuade the shifter to detache itself from the transmission after being on for so long.
  4. Anytime you are replacing the shifter it is highly recommended to change the dampener bushing.
  5. Now grab your new shifter.
  6. Install the shifter and secure it with the four bolts, then put your lower shift boot back on.
  7. Now all you need to do is install the shifter bezel and boot assembly, then screw your shift knob back on and you're ready to row through the gears in your new shifter!

You'll wonder how you went this long with the stock shifter assembly after installing one of our aftermarket short throw shifter.
