MOMO Shift Knobs
 
Ok, whats the deal, will Momo shift knobs fit on my 98 Boxster? On eBay, some sellers say it will, some say it won't. What's the deal?? :confused:

You can fit a MOMO shift knob to the Boxster shifter but it will require you to round out the top of the shaft to fit, not a difficult thing to do with a drimmel and grinder bit attached.

As I have done myself.

Thanks, will "rounding out the shaft" be obvious when I see it?

Yes it will be quite obvious, the MOMO knob is round and the stick of the box is rectangular so you will just round off the four corners a bit at a time till it fits.

Took me maybe 10-15 minutes with a dremel, make sure to wear gloves as it will get hot, also I did not do this while in the car, I had removed it as I was installing a short shift kit at the same time.

There is a write up on Pelican Parts.
