Has anyone used hot glue to attach a new leather shift boot?
When you remove the old one, the metal bracket is useless, as you have to break off the plastic pieces that hold it on. Hot glue would make it a lot easier to do, I think...I wonder if high heat coming off the tranny would make it soft?

All I have done to mine is just lay the boot down and place the console piece over it. It has held find for over 2 years.

Hot glue won't hold over time. Try a two part epoxy (available at most auto supply shops for around 8-10 bucks a tube) to fix it. You can use small dabs of hot glue to hold it in for a while, as the hot glue sets very quickly, and the epoxy will take almost an hour to set.

Ditto on the hot glue. Been there, done that, got the T-Shirt. My wife being frustrated that hers was "hanging all open" got another console piece with boot for $30 on eBay.
