Toyota might call them stick shifts or gear knobs. Whatever you call the shift knob in your Toyota TRD vehicle, what it does is more important. Yes, it's basically a transmission part, and yes, it offers a better grip than fumbling around for a bare gear lever. However, when it comes to shifting into the right gear the first time, a shift knob makes all the difference.
A shift knob ensures that happens by displaying the proper direction in which to shift for every gear. The process is simple: grab it, press your clutch if you've got a manual transmission, and pull it the right way. What shift knobs are made of, however, their shapes, their sizes, even their weights -- that's a bit more complicated, mainly because most look the same. Toyota makes them for its TRD models out of everything from plastic and ruggeder metal to the ultimate in strength, carbon fiber. Some even come wrapped in vinyl or leather.
When Do You Replace a Shift Knob?
That's an easy answer: most often, when the one you have gets old and wears out, or, if you just want a change of style. Your best option in either case is genuine OEM. That's because shift knobs made by Toyota will fit your TRD performance vehicle specifically. They're easy to install, too: a self-tapping sleeve or direct-fit screw threads ensure compatibility with your Toyota shift lever, right off the shelf.
