Thanks for the purchase and I am glad you like it. Please send me a pic when you get it installed.

LOL joy and heartbreak yesterday when I installed it. It looks great and no issues with the plate at all.

The problem is while placing the console back, I accidentally snapped off the plunger piece on the gear shifter.

I have a question. As far as replacing the gear shift assembly, would it be possible to just replace that plunger piece? Or even the stick shift? Any shortcut suggestions will be welcome.

I found some whole floor shift assemblies on eBay but all for $50 plus. If can just replace a smaller part for cheaper that is what I'm looking for now. Maybe there's a way to rig the plunger to be able to reinstall the cue ball. Just asking.

Here you can see where the plunger broke off:


Here is the new shifter plate in all it's glory:

Already looked around and there are none to be found within 2 hrs drive time. So that's why I'm looking for a cheap fix...if anyone maybe knows any. If not, I'll just buy one of the $50 assemblies on eBay.

Also check Craigslist and FB Marketplace. People are parting out PT's all the time.

I've got one or two spare shifters somewhere. If I find one of them, I can send it to you. Might be Friday before I get a chance to search in the daylight.

For the life of me, I can't find that little piece. It has to be hidden underneath the shifter assembly. I imagine I'll find it at some point.

I was thinking of just JB welding it back on but since I can't locate it, I'm stuck.

I would be in debt to you forever if you can find one. Not trying to be picky or anything, but is it possible to remove the stick from the assembly? That would be optimum for mailing too.

As for now, my PT is driveable. I just use my finger to depress the plunger and the stick shift works fine. Not an emergency situation by any means LOL

I'm really annoyed with myself though for not paying attention to it when I was reinstalling the console. I was feeling like a kid that got the perfect toy for a gift on XMas - then immediately broke it.

I'll keep checking back here daily. Thanks everyone and thanks again to bubba for the awesome chrome plate. It does look great.
