91 f150 gear shifter boot replacement

Have new ford boot for mazda type tranny 5speed. How to install? Old boot just had outer boot with foam insert. New one has inner and outer boot with inner boot hole too small to fit over gear shift. Have gear shifter knob off, looks like I have to remove handle off gear shifter stem. How does this handle come off? Has hole under shifter knob, Is this key to removal? Is there a bolt of some kind in here? Can turn handle slightly does not feel pressed on or threaded on ,if so how is this handle attached by what kind of bolt and what size?

    The inner boot went under the gear shift handle does not slide on over either end. Put the inner boot on,then install the handle put bolt back on gear shift handle then slide outer boot over top of handle, install shifter knob rescrew shifter plate to floor , Done ! What threw me off was when I bought the boots they were screwed together with the inner one upside down, Dont know why you referred me to a site on how to lift my truck. Anyways can you tell me how to tell if the center carrier bearing is bad on my drive shaft on91 f150 and the exact steps on how to replace it . Thanks Dean

Try the following : " Remove the four screws that mount the shift boot to the floorboard. Pull the boot up out of the way (It cannot be removed over the shift knob). remove the four bolts that mount the inner shift boot to the floorboard (there are two on top and two on the side.) Carefully pull the inner boot up through the hole in the carpeting
and out of the way. Remove the bolt that mounts the shift lever to the transfer case shift linkage. Remove the shift lever from the linkage. Slide both shift boots off the bottom of the shift lever. It may be necessary to lubricate the shift lever to remove the inner boot."

    The website was there only as a reference, as I reported the procedure from the website, I did not want to address you to that website , sorry about the confusion.


    Regarding the center support bearing for the driveshaft, to check it out you need to go under the car,
    and try moving the driveshaft around the bearing. If you notice that it has too much play, then it is time to replace it.

    Often, when the center carrier bearing is defective you get vibration on the driveshaft while you drive the car.

    Generally , to replace the center carrier bearing you need to remove the outside bearing
    part, so that you leave bare the center race on the shaft. Then you need to take off the race by using a hammer and a punch. Doing this be careful to hit the center bearing race without damaging the carrier bearing.
    Normally this job should be done at a garage by a qualified mechanic.

    If you decide to do it yourself it is better to follow the step-by-step procedure with pictures, that you find on the Chilton or Haynes repair manual for your truck.

no GL4 lube in tranny.

replace part 27 (25551xxxx)
when this fails it hard to hits gears, and also alows the shifter to bounce wildly till it bumps out of gear.
if not that, its serious. (bearings and or synchro rings, dogs)

How do you remove the gear shift lever on a 93 ford ranger?


many of these trucks have a mazda trans in them, to remove these shifters you will need to remove the 4 phillips head screws from the corners of the trim around the shifter boot and pull it up out of your way. it's not necessary to remove the boot from the shifter, just lift it up for access to the top of the trans. at the base of the shifter on the top of the trans you will see a plate attached with torx head screws. remove all but 2 of them, now make sure the trans is in neutral and remove the last 2 screws and pull the shifter straight up. the shifter is now out leaving a big hole open on the top of the trans for dirt to fal into so put a wrag in it or screw a piece of cardboard to it. installation is the reverse. good luck
