The gear shift boot on my 1971 1800E frequently pulls free at the bottom & allows exhaust & road noise up into the passenger compartment.<p>This was the boot that was on the vehicle when I purchased it, but it appears to be new & very stiff.<p>Any suggestions on resolving this.

Roger;<p>Carefully feel around the edge of the metal where the shift boot fits to see if there is a double floor.<p>George Dill<p>

Re: Gear Shift Boot (gdill2)

Thanks, but there is not a double metal structure.<p>However, by removing the carpet & placing the boot below the carpet & sandwiched under the tray, it appears to be much better.<p>Only time will tell.<p>Thanks for the advise. Let me know if there is anything else that might improve this.<p>Roger
