It threaded into the knob, but was loose until it finally bottomed out. Hard to see, but I JB Welded the adapter into the knob.





After it cured, I didn’t want to give anyone the idea that it can be taken out with a wrench, so I rounded the corners down and made it round. More or less matches the knob.

I threaded it on, synched it into place, and zip tied the shift boot to the rest of the exposed thread of the shifter.







Why Subaru provided a $0.07 adapter with their $100 - $150 shift knob, I’ll never know. I might make a separate post of this cause I didn’t find anything online that anyone’s ‘repaired’ these before.

And done!



A few odds and ends to wrap up the interior is touching up the exposed rivets and some spots on the seats.

Also earlier in the week, I took Vicky out for her first drive this year! Man those seats are nice!!! It was also a pleasant change driving with a solid shift knob. So I took a photo-op...
