Shift Boot?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me where to buy a decent quality OEM shifter boot for a 510?    Thanks...

OEM does not exist anymore.

 

You can find good repops all over eBay.

Actually, you might try a Nissan dealer.  Not too long ago, i could get a new OEM shift boot for a 521.

If you can come up with the Nissan part number, your Florida Nissan dealer might be more willing special order it.

I got 2 of these aftermarket boots for a 510 on EBay from Thailand, they look and fit pretty good.

Thanks to all for the replies.   I had seen the Thailand boot & another from Mexico, but hesitated because both of the sellers had less than 100% positive feedback.    I now went ahead & ordered the Thailand one.    I just thought that someone might know of a better one available, I already checked with my dealer (less than a mile from my house) to no avail.

 

The same Nissan Dealer invited my local car club to display their mostly american cars for a promotion / party.    I brought my 'Goon.   I was really surprised that only one of the staff / salesmen, had a clue that it was a 1972 Nissan!

Nissan stopped being Nissan around mid '90s.

Yes, I have seen the round boot, but I have always had the oval on my '72 'Goon.    Here is the one I ordered, hopefully it is the correct one...

I don't think that was the one I got but if the bottom is oval it should work, I have used a leather boot and using pinch welt to hold it on the metal plate as well.

Yeah, mine was more oval than square also, I don't see one like that currently on there though

The one in my 710 could be out of anything. It fits but may come up the shifter a bit more than I'd like. It's got lots of folds so it flexes just fine. Originally I had the faux leather covering with the draw string but it was in very poor shape and this looks clean.

I bought this boot a while back. Way too big. Was not easy to get a refund.

  I've recently installed a gearshift boot from a 1991 Mazda Pick-Up  B2200.

     It fits pretty snug; and looks good too. The rubber is much better quality. Good luck!
