Does anyone have pics & description on how to install the CC Short Shifter? I know there's a thread on here but it has RED X's and I can't right click them either.

Help!

There's also a PDF installation guide for the TWM short shifter on their website. I'd think it would be relatively similar to CC's.

ehh... it takes some force (and perhaps a little plastic mutilation) but it'll come off

Hi guys, some of you seem to have difficulty removing the push nuts holding the top of the assembly. It' hard the first time, but after you've done it 200 times, it gets easier!

The best tool to remove the push nut is either a very sharp flat screwdriver or a pointed tool. The pointed tool works best because it's easier to get in between the push nut and the assembly. Once an opening is made, you just insert the flat screw driver in and get the push nut off the shaft.

You will know the tip for your next TWM shifter installation!

You can take a look at our installation manual on this page: http://www.twmperformance.com/shortshifter...ortshifters.htm

If you have any question about one of our short shifter or a shift knob, don't hesitate to contact us, toll free: 1-877-655-0540

Just to add to what some have said. There is absolutely NO reason to get out a cutting tool for this. 30 seconds with a screwdriver and a few light hammer taps and the washer is off. It may break when you pry it off, but you either have the one that comes with the kit or you can buy one from ACE/True Value.

I just installed the Dr Iso short shifter (great guy to deal with and great shifter setup by the way) and the install is really cake. About an hour, but I was letting my 10 year old take a lot of the console apart for me


Washer = easy, no big force needed if you just look at it and do it right
Cap = takes a little wiggling, but with two prying tools you can pop it right off fairly quickly.

The rest = simple

I would put it at a 4-5 (out of 10) for a less experienced person, a 1-2 for those who have wrenched a good amount.

I wonder when they started using the metal clips on the cap. Mine does not have these.

They seem to appear almost at random. My cage has them, but I've seen cages with later manufacture date stamps and no clips. I have 4 cages on hand, 2 with clips and 2 without.[/b]
They started putting the clips on them right before the TSB for loose shifters came out. The clips ensure the ring won't lift and cause the loose shifter condition.

I've personally seen two cages with clips and loose shifter syndrome. One as a result of an undersized TWM pivot ball that "wiggled" the cup into loosenessness, and one with the same condition as a result of a Creative Compacts.

Too bad Toyco can't account for poorly QC'd aftermarket parts.

Another +1 for Dr Isotope's short shifter!
Much nicer than the stock one and better shift feel.
