I have the Ergonomic OBX Shift Know sold by Toyota and the little plastic piece the gets inserted inside the shift know before you screw it on will no longer hold the shift knob tightly in place.

Does anyone know where I can go to get a replacement part or a site that sells the actually threaded tubing in length.

Thanks in advance

replace it. i have nothing good to say about OBX knobs, nor do i believe they are worth the effort to replace parts on. go get a nice weighted momo, it will last forever.

Mine's auto so it doesn't matter if it's weighted or not.

But.... you can try teflon tape. Anything that will widen the plastic piece a little will make it have better grip.

Or is it the plastic piece that's not gripping onto the shifter shaft? Wrap the shifter shaft threads with teflon tape.

I have a Sparco knob on my auto. I wound up basically fabricating a threaded insert into the knob so it screws down nice and tight. I should've taken pictures, but I didn't. It was basically about an 1.5" long hex piece that was already threaded which I inserted into the largest plastic piece that came with the knob and then knocked the new piece up to the top of the knob so it sits lower than stock and is much more comfortable.

I meant you need to wrap the plastic piece with it if it's not gripping.... or the shifter shaft...
