    replace shift/brake skirts without removing console?

    I have a 1998 Catera. The skirts around both the shift lever and the emergency brake have rotted away. I've found a British company on ebay selling leather replacements, $35 for the pair. Would putting them in mean removing the entire console-- and lord only knows what a body shop would charge for that-- or is this something that could be done from the top side?

    Re: replace shift/brake skirts without removing console?

    Hello All: A couple of months ago I bought a set from a site in GB and they were a perfect fit. For the shifter you press forward on the edge of the frame around the rear of the boot. It has a plastic frame inside that bends to allow you to remove it. I glued (epoxy) the new one in place where the old one has to be peeled off the plastic frame.They send instructions with it that are easy to follow. For the hand brake you have to remove the cup holder by squeezing the two black buttons together. I think there are some very tiny Philips screws that have to come out to get at it. One thing not mentioned in the instructions for the shifter is that you have to cut some of the stitching where the shift knob goes through. The knob is too big to get the boot over it. I glued some velcro on it to close the hole once the boot was in place. Good Luck, Brian
