The Miata has always had one of the best feeling shifters on the planet. But as they get older, some of the components start to wear and it slowly loses precision. You might not even notice, but it's not what it was. Luckily, it's easy to rebuild, and you can access everything from inside the car.

This kit includes all the pieces you need to make your shifter feel new again. All components are factory Miata parts. Please note, we are updating all our kits to include the newer Mazda small shift boot. The boot included with your kit may differ from what is in the photo above.

Absolutely worthwhile
Parts fit perfectly, the end result is a cooler, quieter cabin, and more precise swifter feel.

It's worth watching an online tutorial, there are a couple details of the removal and installation process that aren't intuitive.

Quality of life upgrade.
Did this on an '05 MSM and oh my goodness it feels like a brand new car again. Shifting is now much more precise, direct, and mechanical. No more guessing where reverse is!
Pretty simple to install, but I believe only the base bushing and rubber bezels needed to be replaced. Took a little convincing to get the washer over the gear lever. Worth every penny.

Easy and worthwhile
Both boots where badly torn on my 2000, my plastic bushing was gone and my fluid was horrendous. This with new fluid was an amazing refresh that was done by sitting in my drivers seat.

Surprising Result
My trans tunnel was radiating heat which was heating up the cabin. Since I just bought the car and it has 106k miles on it.....I decided to rebuild the shifter. It makes so much difference I couldn't believe it. No more heat ... shifts more crisp. Highly recommend doing this little 45 minute job. Another tip...go ahead and change your trans fluid...the combination is fantastic.
