gear gaitor and gear knob

hi i think i have the 1996 version impreza wrx import it has the gear surround that is part of the sterio that "loops" around the gear knob and up each side of the sterio sides...and the top part of the gaitor is keept up by a lip that goes over the bottom of the gear knob now i want to change the gaitor and gear knob but atm it has the original rubber gaitor that had folds and attaches to the underneath of the surround by little plastic pins my question is can i buy any gaitor and will it fit and how do i keep a leather one up so it wont fall down the gear shaft and look silly allso how do i attach the leather gaitor to the one i have now that loops around the sterio thanks

Re: gear gaitor and gear knob

That rubber gaitor clips onto the plastic surround dont it? could you not just do that with the leather one on the link and just get a gear knob that secure the top of that leather gaitor as their a string up top of it to pull it close my gear knob has a lip in it so the leather gaitor is secured in it at the top from it falling down it should work with yours

Re: gear gaitor and gear knob

When I got that leather gaitor aswell you'll have to do a job on it to fit like the original like my old one then end of that leather gaitor has a string aswell I took it out then done a job on it to make it fit like the original one very easy anyway but try to get an original gear knob if you can as mine has a lip in it and was able to secure it then aswell from the top with the top string on the gaitor
