automatic transmission shift knob change?

can you change the shift knob on an automatic rsx with (not another stock shift knob) but with an aftermarket one?

yes. the auto shift knobs have a different thread and are slightly smaller than manual ones. i think you can get an adapter for it though.

Yeah, just screw off the auto knob; it's real easy.

I put a Nardi black leather shift knob in mine:



Looks even better than the stock knob and feels a lot better too. I think you can buy it from weksos, but I bought mine from a member here. They retail for $60 something dollars I think.

wait you just un-screw the original knob and u can put any shift knob you want?? ive heard that on in automatic you cant really pick your shift knob out of a wide variety, it has to have been made for the rsx auto.

No no no no

Alright check it out

When you take off your stock shift knob, all you are left with is your shifter arm. Well what you can do is buy a manual shift knob, we will go with sparco because thats what I have on mine and it will work the same on your auto, and the sparco knobs come with an attachment that has 3 little screws on it

You place the attachment ontop of your shift arm, screw in the 3 screws tight with an allen wrench, then on the top of the adaptor, there is a little threaded knob that sticks off, and you screw the actual shift knob onto the adaptor

wait i might be wrong, if there is the shift lock mechanism on your auto, you might have to disable it, or cut it off with a dremel, auto guys help me out here

if you cut the auto lock mechanism on the top of your shift lever, then you can get anyone you want, but just remember, if you do that, you can easily move the shifter into another gear without pressing the release button so i would NOT recommend this at all

Go to www.optauto.com, they sell universal automatic shiftknobs that look fairly good

No shift lock mechanism on the auto. I had a black leather knob from an RL. Still have it actually.
