Your shift boot is an important part in your car that is attached to our gear stick. This is what you use to shift gears, and it works as a great way to cover the gear assembly. It takes quite a beating over time, which is why it may be necessary to replace it at some point. Some people prefer to invest in a good quality shifter boot that will customize the look of their car, rather than the factory standard their car came with. Here are a few things to consider when in the market for a new shifter boot:

  • Replace your broken boot as soon as possible: If you need to replace your shifter boot out of necessity, this isn’t something you should wait on. Be sure to get it replaced as soon as possible. Leaving a damaged shifter boot can cause problems for your entire shifting mechanism, which will then become a bigger problem to fix. The purpose of a shifter boot is to protect the shifting mechanism.

  • Splurge on a good quality boot: Shifter boots tend to be very reasonably priced, which means you can splurge and get a good quality one. A good quality one is meant to hold up well over time, look attractive, and provide the proper amount of protection.

  • Choose your material: You can find shift boots made of rubber or vinyl, but if you want something more expensive looking, you can find synthetic or real leather options available for purchase on the market. The leather shifter boots are the most expensive option, but also hold up the best over time.

The shifter boot is an important component in your car as it keeps your shifting mechanism protected. If your shifter boot is cracked, worn, or corroding, it’s time for a new one.

Chevrolet Equinox - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Niles, Illinois
Rigo was great! He got there early, finished the job early, left everything clean. He changed my rear pads and rotors. The original quoted time was 90 minutes, he was done in about 60. He knows what he is doing and I am recommending him to all my friends and coworkers.

Rigo is a maverick hands down. Don’t take your car for work elsewhere. Especially great at Mercedes—this guy knows his profession! I will be using him for everything related to my car going forward.
