I bought a silver shift know for my '05 and gave my dark grey shift knob to my son for his '03 - they are both automatic transmission and the shift knobs are interchangeable.

You can get a different colored shift knob from another year and it will more than likely fit.

Or you can paint it.

or do a search on this forum for shift knobs - here's a link to an earlier thread:

Could always look on ebay and when you get it you'd have to hack saw bout an inch to get it to fit. But that's only 5 speed. Otherwise you can find auto shift knobs on ebay too. That's the best bet. Might be cheaper

I was given an 8 ball to put on. it was a screw on type. I scratched the stocker up trying to turn it off before I realized it pulled off. grr... so I sanded it down and used spray dye for doing interiors. mine's charcoal grey now. the dye sinks in. I haven't tried yet with the shifter knob, but I have dyed many a plastic/nylon etc part using ritt or tintex dye in a pot on the stove. dollar store here sells the boxes... heat water, put dyde in toss part in. longer it sits the deeper the dye and deeper it seeps in...

I used to detail stuff for a custom car builder and had to dye lots of seatbelts and such. we've been dying rc car parts for 20 yrs

Cool Re: Shift knob; help!!

Just Google for "PT Cruiser shifter balls"........there are numerous sites.
I ended up with a custom painted FlameBall (Had the do a special color scheme). They even have one with an LED light in the translucent flame.

Or, paint your own!
