Question How to replace my 6spd Shifter Boot

I have a 2000 Superduty XL manual tranny 6 speed that I bought about a year ago. The shifter boot hard plastic base was busted up it the truck's previous life so I finally bought a replacement part at the dealer.

Problem is, I'm not sure what I need to remove to replace this thing.

I got the old hard plastic thing with 4 screws removed fine, but now it's hung up on the shifter. It doesn't look to me like you stretch the new boot over the knob, but I could be wrong.

It seems like the existing boot is tucked up into the sleeve of the shifter lever. My first guess is that somehow I could take off that sleeve and replace the shifter boot, then put it back on. But I can tell how it's on there.

I'm a little nervous to go ape on it and then have to buy more parts. Wouldn't want to hurt my little truck.

Help would be much appreciated!

Did you get this done? Getting ready to do mine and curious about getting it off the shifter also.

Let me know either way.

Unbolt the shifter, slide boot off the bottom. Or remove the knob and go up.

That's what I was thinking, but just haven't looked at it too hard yet.
Just a tight fit then?

You have to unbolt the shifter, it won't slide over the top even with the knob off.
I actually broke mine racing an import across an intersection one time.. (Don't ask me how, I was slamming gears but the break was 80% old and I just finished it off) Ended up driving home with a 12" Crescent wrench on it.. lol
