05 Mustang Shift Lever Paint Peeling-Help!

6228 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  RCasad
I've searched the threads here and can't quite find anything that helps me. The shift lever on my 05 (auto tranny) is peeling at the top seam. From what I've read this seems to be a pretty common problem, but no one has quite come up with a solution.

I've looked at aftermarket levers but I'm not really a fan, I like the stock look. I went to my local dealer and I have to order the ENTIRE mechanism, which is about $250.00 which isn't worth it.

Any help?!

I would just scuff it up really well, then put a coat of whatever color the shifter is from factory on and maybe a low gloss clear and call it good. Can you get it out of the car easily?
