Make sure you don't get a left-handed one by accident, they are out there!

He states 2000 -2007. That's 4th generation, right? I have a 2004 and it has a sleeve but it is solid black plastic. I can't see any way to pull that down. The shift knob is loose. How do I tighten that?

Hi Bob,

What you'll need to do is firmly grasp the black plastic collar and pull it down towards the floorboard.

Once it pops loose, you'll see the two Phillips screws or two Torx screws that need to be tightened up.

Bob, if it hasn't been done before, the key word is "firmly", lol.

OK Sheila. Hopefully it will go back into place "firmly" once I have "firmly" got it to move.

Fantastic! bought an 03 SES last week for my daughters first car. Shifter was loose, pulled down the plastic cover which revealed Two-T20 Torx screws. Ten seconds later it was all tightened up and the sleeve pulled back up. Thanks.
