Question about 1992 Mazda MX-5
The shifter on the Miata appears to separate into two separate pieces. Once the shifter and knob is removed, you can see a small hole going down the length of the shifter and a small hole in the side with some spring loaded detent inside. I am trying to separate the shifter cover from the lower assembly. Some internet posts state that disassembly is not required; that you only need to lube the new shifter boot with silicon lube and slide it over the shifter. This is true with the outer shifter boot that attaches to the car, but not true with the dry rooted boot that attaches to the transmission. How does the shifter sleeve separate from the lower shifter assembly? My initial attempts to twist off the upper part failed.
The lower shifter boot is attached to the transmission by 3 10mm bolts. You will need to remove to center consoule and the upper shift boot that attaches to the car to be able to remove the lower boot. Then you can replace the lower boot.
