Cup holder removed

I am looking for pics with the stock cup holder/ shift cover removed on a manuel transmission.

I kinda broke mine and want to see it taken off. Also what have people done with theres and how did you take it off?

I remember awhile back seeing some pics of them removed so get them pics posted.

Thanks,

-Jake

Ummm, you DID find the 4 screws that hold it on right?

Simply move the rubber away from the plastic and there are 4 phillips screw holes. It helps to use a stubby on the forward two.

Yes it is very easy to take it off if you didnt remove all the screws it would not come out.

He wants to see a pic of it off to see if it looks good. I doubt it will since the boot doesn't go all the way too the floor.

Not to mention that your airbag PCM is gonna be visible. I ran mine that way for about a week after I installed the hurst, bolted the supplied hurst boot right to the floor. I personally got tired of looking at the airbag controller, and the shifter made a more noticable amount of noise.

Yeah you don't really want the Airbag controller laying around. Something could smack it and set your bags off or damage the controller and cause it to fail when needed.

I posted a pic in your "back seats removed" thread of a console I custom made for my Hurst shifter.

Mine only has 2 screws as well.

I JUST put mine back together as I did my clutch this past weekend.

To be honest. The shifter boot is too short, the airbag controller will be exposed and the bolt/wedge that holds the shifter on will be exposed.. It looks like *** without the cover.

I didn't take any pics at all as I posted some a long time ago when I moved to the T5, didn't think it was anything new.

I agree it that is will look bad but the plate that the 2 screws, screw into broke. So now it squeeks like crazy and is really annoying.

Can I replace that plate?

It shoudl be fairly easy to replace, just get some aluminum sheeting and tack weld it down.. or bolt it, either or, maybe put some sealant on it to cancel out any noise. I had to cut mine up a bit when I did my bodylift, had to get a shifter extension that didnt come with the kit and was on a 'backorder' but its all good now =)

the plastic piece that the cupholder piece screws to tends to break..i've replaced mine twice so far from them being flimsey. I recently found out that I have mine on backwards! explorer front is facing the front on my ranger!

The floor piece, the 'inspection cover' is held down by 4 screws. if you want...i could take mine all apart for ya tomorrow after work and snap a bunch o pics.

I vote boneyard hunting...that's where i get all my little doodads.

While your at it.. treat yourself even nicer and buy a sheet or two of Dynamat sound proofing... apply it right around the shifter area, I've heard it DRASTICALLY reduces road/tranny noise from down there

I got it figured out. I took it all apart and say like Shane said that there are two ends to it, an Explorer and Ranger side. Mine was on ranger but was broke so I just turned it around and then used the Explorer side and it seems to be working just fine.

Here are some pics.

Shane, what advantages would a hurst shift kit give me? Is it really going to be worth the price?

Short, quick shifts, the cool 'click click' into the gears. Plus, the look of the hurst shifter is just awesome.

Mines cracked on both sides, I flipped it once. I need to get a new one. The Hurst shifter is the best thing I bought for my truck. I absolutely love it, except for the constant leaking that I had to fix. Lots of ultra black silicone, no more leak. It shifts so nice the factory shifter can't compare. If you do get it use lots of loc tite on the bolts or they will rattle loose.

ok, two things.
First of all the factory boot definetly reaches to the floor!!! I am going to finish mine off this weekend and then I will show you the pics. And I also put some dynamat down there.
second, if you don't like the air bag controller showing, just cover it up!!! Its not that hard guys!
I know it sounds like I am talking out of me as* but just give me the weekend to finish mine up and it all will be clear....

As for the cover with ranger/explorer I believe the only difference in which side is facing forward is the placement of the shifter hole. The screws line up the same, but if you notice, the hole is closer to one then the other (off centered). If I remember correctly, when you put it in the direction for the ranger than the hole is forward of center...

And Jake, could you PLEASE tell me how you got your shift **** off?? I have pulled and twisted into oblivion, but haven't even gotten it to budge!!!

I took a monkey wrench and pulled on it for over a half hour as hard as I could. I am 230 and bench 350 and it was one of the hardest things I have ever done. It was 50 degrees of less out when I did it so that could have played a factor.

I recommend getting it hot some how.

Your ending results look good.
