Shift Knobs and Boots for Mazda 6

The Mazda 6 is a mid-size sedan that may include an automatic or manual transmission. Manual versions of this car feature a five or six-speed transmission controlled with a shifter in the center console. The shift knob displays a visual diagram of gear positions to make driving more efficient and convenient.

How do you replace the knob and boot?

These items are connected to a shifter assembly by the metal threads of the gear stick. They can be replaced in about 5 to 10 minutes by one person without any tools or experience.

  • Loosen the shift knob by turning it counterclockwise, and then remove it from the assembly.
  • Lift the leather boot up from the center console, and then slide it off the stick.
  • Slide the new boot over the assembly, and then press it firmly into place in the center console.
  • Place the new knob on the stick, and then turn it clockwise to fasten it to the assembly.
How do you know when to replace these parts?

These items are heavily used during normal operation of the Mazda 6. If the visual gear diagram has become faded and illegible, replacing the shift knob will improve driving safety and help to protect your manual transmission from excessive wear and tear caused by faulty shifting. Maintaining the cosmetic condition of your center console helps to preserve the value of your automobile for its full lifespan. Shifter knobs and leather boot sleeves typically need to be replaced every 50,000 to 60,000 miles or 5 to 6 years.

Do these parts impact the Mazda’s performance?

A worn-out or missing knob can reduce the safety and performance of your car by making it harder to switch gears. Proper shifting helps to optimize your transmission’s revolutions per minute and protect your engine from overheating. Being able to switch gears quickly in response to events on the road can help you avoid accidents and prevent your car from stalling out.

Do these products match the Mazda 6 interior?

These knobs and boots are designed to match the original interior of the Mazda 6. Original manufacturer’s products are available for every Mazda 6 model ever produced, and many of these items are compatible with multiple models. The knobs are designed to fit the threaded head of the Mazda shift stick, so they will screw on and off without getting stuck.

How do you care for these products?

By cleaning dirt, oil, and other contaminants off of these items on a daily basis, you can extend their lifespans and preserve the value and cosmetic condition of your Mazda. The boot sleeve can be kept soft and pliant with weekly applications of leather oil and by dry-buffing it with a clean towel.
