my 97 is the same way, all the black dye is coming off and looks horrible. i was going to try some liquid black dye on it and see what happens, i wouldnt pay 30 bucks for a replacement never mind what they quoted you lol!
$16.25... I bet you're disappointed, huh? Yeah, Luke's the man!
To be sure!
You know, I have given the SHIFT BOOT a great deal of love and attention --- and protectant! I cannot imagine how it would be replaced, since it does seem to be (UNNCESSARILY) in unit with the shift knob.
I did the same as RCaddy - Used the original pleather to make a new pattern of pleather; used staple-gun (not glue) to afix the new pattern onto a plastic boot mount. Dont confuse its mounting angle in the car (top/bom. L/R) I used the original elastic bungy too - and sewn the rest of it - Cost less than $5 - for fabric.
