Fitting / Replacing leather gearshift surround / gaiter on Mk3 Mondeo


How to fit a leather gaiter surround on Mk3 Mondeo - May apply to other fords - Focus / Fiesta etc

I thought my gearshift gaiter was looking a bit scabby -


So i bought a Genuine leather gearshift gaiter, i went for the black leather with black stitching, but other colours are available -


Ist i unscrewed the gearknob -


Then the trim lifts from the back with the screwdriver (carefully)-


the gaiter and surround then comes away from the console plate - then the trim has to be seperated from the trim (careful - its delicate) i used pliers and scissors -


Once the remnants of the old gaiter are removed - I lined up the new one -


I then carefully hooked the new gaiter onto the back of the console plate -


The trim then gets fitted onto the bottom -


I used superglue for this - i recommend you take it away from the car, wear gloves, put lots of newspaper down/ mask everything if you use superglue

The plate/ new gaiter and the gearstick gets fitted back on -

- finished! -
