Thanks for these instructions. I bought a different brand (because honestly I don't care about the vibration damper or spending an extra $100 for it, just personal preference) and ended up using these instructions to do the job. This was my first time under a car (I've never even changed my own oil), so it was an educational experience.

The only thing that was different than the instructions for me was one of the bolts holding the shifter in was the advertised 10mm, but the other was 11mm. I think this might have just been a mistake on my particular car, since that doesn't really make any sense.

Post-install I've driven about 40 miles, and everything seems solid. I pinched my thumb a couple times shifting into reverse, so I guess I ought to stop putting my thumb on the left side :D

A couple other notes on the install:

-The job would have only taken about 90 minutes, but I got carried away and accidentally unbolted the 12mm bolts holding the shifter assembly in place. Those were really not fun to put back in, so don't do what I did :D

-I was able to do this in 2 hours: I didn't unhook the exhaust or drive-train, used jack stands,worked in the dark, and used a flashlight. It was kind of a pain to reach the bolts and tighten them properly this way, so I wouldn't recommend doing it this way unless you have some decent arm strength.

-The heat shield has SHARP edges. Holy crap.

-Because I didn't unhook the exhaust one of the 10mm bolts holding the shift lever in place was REALLY hard to reach. Not impossible, just a pain.

-Don't forget to put some anti-seize grease on the heat shield bolts before you put it back on.

-Tools/materials I used: jack stands, regular socket wrench w/ extender, 10mm & 11mm sockets (my shift lever's nut & bolt were 10mm), socket driver + vicegrips to get to one of the bolts that was blocked by the exhaust pipe (don't make fun of me! :D).

-Learned the hard way not to use a socket wrench directly above your head :D It bit me right in the nose.

Nice write up, I just my 14 model 2T premium, and was looking and doing this install, just worried about the stock boot, I don't see any snap point like in your pic, anyone know how to take off the boot on a 13/14 model

There are some threads about how to take our boots off. The clips holding the boot are on the inside. I've read some people just twist counter clockwise and up, and they snap right off. Others say to take the plastic console piece off first and lift the boot upwards to reach the clips. I haven't taken mine off yet so I couldn't tell you which one worked for me.

Great wright up BTW!

I wasn't able to get that rubber boot underneath back on... man I tried and tried, knuckles all scrapped to ishh.... finally just gave up and left it there. Checked when I was installing my exhaust and it didn't have water or anything in it, which was my fear.

Thanks for the write up. Installed a short throw today and it probably halved the amount of time it would have taken me. And GenRSpec13 that boot was the worst part of the installation. Luckily I have skinny fingers and finally got it back on but what a PITA!

Thanks for the DIY. I don't know what the deal was, maybe they changed some design slightly for 2015 but I could not get that pin out that held the shifter to the linkage. I tugged and pulled and hammered and eventually gave up after half the day slipped by. With that being said, I have the stock shifter installed and will be selling my ATQ SS with rear bushings as I can't be hassled to attempt that installation again. Jeesh...

I had the same problem with the shifter pin on my 2014 2.0T. I tried prying it out, pushing it out, and using pliers but the pin would not budge.
