auto shift delete

Hi, I am in the final stages of a zf 5 swap after my auto trans died in my 97 psd. I did not get a new steering column cause I swear at some point I found a post where someone was talking about a piece to cover where the shift selector comes out of the auto steering column. Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? I really don't feel like swapping a column unless I can't find a cover to delete the auto shift selector. Thanks in advance!!

Re: auto shift delete

All you have to do its remove the shifter and get the manual plastic column cover

Re: auto shift delete

You may have a issue removing the key if you don't have the auto selector in park or the key release button from a manual.

When I did my 95 I bought a manual column off ebay and just swapped the parts over. It isn't hard, just pull the lower dash, steering column cover and 4 nuts holding the column up and you will have enough access to remove all the parts which are held in with torx screws.

Columns are the same, just subtract the auto pieces and add the 5 speed ignition lock button.
