    I have that same shift knob on my sport hatch. You can get the boot to attach back to it by getting the acuity shifter collar

    Just thought I’d share my experience to the conversation in case anyone is wanting to change the shift knob and might be confused about the shift boot/collar. The way I ended up installing mine, I didn’t need to buy a special boot retainer or take off any console pieces - all I needed was a M10 lock washer to use the stock boot and retainer.

    Installation specifics have everything to do with the specific aftermarket shift knob you are using and how it attaches to the threaded shifter. For the knob I got, it came with a lock nut and the threaded nut inside the knob is recessed by about .5mm-1mm so (1) M10 lock washer did the trick. *Keep in mind, the stock shift knob is flush on the bottom so all you’re trying to do is to make the new shift knob flush on the bottom to have it snug up against the stock shift shift boot locknut.
    1. Pull down the shift boot by pinching the front and back. That will expose the stock lock nut.
    2. Use a 14mm wrench to loosen the nut a little and then unscrew the shift knob.
    3. Put an M10 lock washer on top of the stock lock nut and screw on the new shift knob. Thread the knob all the way on and then back it off a bit so the text aligns how you want. Bring the lock nut up to the knob and using a 14mm wrench, tighten the nut while holding the knob in position.
    4. Pull the boot back up and snap it into place.
