Any one else having a problem with the crhome shifter ring coming loose when going around a corner? I have had it pop all the way off when going around curves at speed and come loose when going around corners in town.

Starting to get a little annoying and I can't see any reason it should be doing that. Unless the trans assembly is moving that much when I turn?


If any one has any idea or solution, it would be greatly apreciated..

Thanks,

Josh

I have a similar problem, though not as bad as that. I was cleaning out the little CD holder next to the shifter ring with a rag and I guess I pressed pretty hard b/c the other end of the cd holder popped out, loosening it from the console completely. When I tried to press it in (again I must have pressed hard), the chrome shifter ring popped off (I guess they closely share a support structure).

The Ring does not randomly pop off but it, along with the CD holder are not in tightly. applying any sort of pressure beyond 'daily use' will dislodge them.

Another possible mod? Maybe a brushed/satin aluminum trim ring (like the Viper) could be made available with a better fastener? Hello parts guys?

I was gonna look into it more this weekend, but since I have to drop a co-worker off at the local dodge dealer (I hate that place), I think I might go in and see what a new one costs and if cheap enough, buy it and mod it .....

Mine popped off while I was cleaning. It doesn't seem to stick in there too well, but as long as I don't touch it, it generally stays in.

Also if there is any interest... I can get a billet CNC peice made to replace the plastic ring....

Mine too. I will spot glue it down one day at the underside tabs. Its real easy to take off... just lift the rubber pad under the ashtry. Two screws... the center console comes out. Had a 2005 300 and the ring-fit was perfect. Had the console apart in that car to apply vinyl carbon fiber to it.
