I'm swapping my shifter for another mk6 dsg one.
Removing and replacing the entire bit
Sorry to confuse
I'm trying to do exactly as you did. Ignore the "boot" part
I confused everybody, including myself
Long Wookie weekend..
The leather is a bit different

I'm sure we can drive our car with No shifter indicator at all and just go by the feel of it, but VW was nice of enough to give us two point of sights of gear selections one on the shifter and one in the mdf.
Not a big deal to have either but I was wondering why some one would want their gear selector removed?
And no I don't drive starring at the shifter, I'm looking at the road......Most of the time
Don't worry bro, trust me I felt like I was going to brake mine to when I replaced/upgraded mine too, but once I had the shifter in S mode while squeezing the trigger I just pulled like a mutha f$&ker............Then pop goes the shifter and surprisingly I did not Fubar it
ya my question was just on replacing the boot with the manual boot because u need the bigger boot to fit the bigger manual bezel. i just think it looks cleaner with the manual bezel and i dont look to see im putting it in the right gear anyways anymore. i just pulled the old boot clean off the dsg knob then got the other one on and with a little glue got it to work.

Ok so i finally got the small video done for the install and removal of the DSG shifter with a few pix and tips too...
Be careful when removing the shifter NOT to pull the trigger button while pulling off the shifter, cuz u will get the trigger stuck and locked out of position. This will come in handy when u are trying to reinstall the shifter, the only way to fix this is to take off the top of the "DSG" aluminum cover to get access to the locking trigger pin. Once the DSG cover is lifted out of the way u will be able to see this locking pin and if it's sticking straight up, then u will have to push it back in its "HOME" position in between the plastic fork below. All u have to do is use a flat-head driver and push down the locking pin all the way down till it locks in between the plastic fork below, this will keep the trigger button locked in place so u can reinstall the shifter when ready. U will "NOT" be able to reinstall the shifter if this is not done the right way so pay attention to where that locking "PIN" is when reinstalling the shifter!!!
BTW...... Notice when the locking pin is "NOT" in its locking position that the trigger button is pushed all the way in and u cant pull it out. But when u push the locking pin down in its home position in between the plastic fork below, this will keep the trigger button pushed out and ready for install.
