Hey guys, I bought the 05 manual shift boot but it does not have an opening at the top to go pass the "reverse lift" on the STI shifter. Anyone know how to get the 05 boot to work with the sti shifter?

you should just have to cut alittle off the top soo it will slip over it then maybe sew it back for a clean look

Just as a reminder make sure to buy a new shift boot, this is an old pic, but as you can see that was the old sti shift boot

is it possible to swap the actual a/c and heater knobs with the 05+ ones?

Anyone know if the Armrest extension for the '04 will work on the 05-06 console armrest?

I found most of everything needed for under $200 shipped.

no it will not. I have an arm rest extension for the 05-07 console if you want it. It does not have the hinge that connects the extension to the console though. Other than that it is perfect.

I see that you need the bezel from an 06 TR so the early style hvac fits, I might seem dumb for asking but what does TR mean?

I don't think you could bend your 04 handle to fit. Most people use the 05+ handle, but still have to bend it a little to make it sit evenly in the ebrake opening. I believe some people have kept their 02-04 brake handle, but changed the top trim piece to a rhd drive version.

As for the radio bracket, I'm pretty sure you'll need the 05+ bracket. If you use the stock 02-04 radio mounting brackets the radio will not be aligned properly and you won't be able to fit the tr bezel, because the radio will sit too high.

I tried to use the 02-04 brackets with my oem double din and I encountered this problem.

how much work is it to swap the 02-04 a/c and heater controls for the 05+ ones? What's exactly involved to do so?

I've got all the parts for this swap sitting in my room. I am only missing a couple of brackets (according to the seller) Pictured are the 2 brackets I have. This big one and the one on the bottom of the storage area of the console. What brackets do I still need so I can get the part numbers off that first post and order them? Thanks for the help.

Three questions for anyone who has done this. I have a full 05 STI center that I'm installing in my 04 wrx.

1) Is it okay to unplug my security box so I can remove my e-brake?

2) I have the 05+ climate control knobs. Is it a plug and play with my 04 harness or will I need to mess with that as well?

3) And does anyone have any pictures of where hey re-located their side mirror adjustment button?

Thanks

you can not use the sti knobs or radio bezel you must have the 05-06wrx TR bezel,us 04 guys use a cable style hvac controls and 05 06 use electronic controls that has servos and multiple climate sensors its nearly impossible to switch over thats why we use every thing but the bezel and knobs

1) yes, the ebrake has to be slightly modified to work (its covered in one of the many posts)

2) not plug and play, unless you have a master's in electrical engineering then its not worth attempting.

3) 05+ door cars, mine still hasn't been moved all the way over due to me being super lazy.

If you want to see mine / need a hand with your install let me know.
