Need a chrome cap for gear shifter....

4L3Z-7213-BA is the entire assembly... Any chance I can fine JUST the chrome cap?! I had been super gluing mine back on but finally must have kicked it out and lost it somewhere....

Any alternatives?!

not that im aware of, heard of people doing other things then superglue, like epoxy

ive have one with a chrome cap, and im sure it will eventually suffer the same fate, but for now im being gentle with it.

Mine popped of a while ago. I did some thorough searching and the best idea anyone had was super glue it. It's one of those times when Ford is less than brilliant - they sell only the entire assembly when many of us just need the 25-cent plastic cap. Maybe you can go to a wresking yard and pop one off??

Good luck.

I've been trying to get mine off because the pup chewed it up pretty good.
I was hoping to get a new one and I can't even get the old one off.

I glued mine back on about 5 times before throwing in the towel and buying a whole new assembly on e-bay for $50. The dealer charges about $85. There is a thread somewhere around here explaining how to change it. Look in the "how to" section. I will post a link if I find it.

There was a thread on here with pictures but could only find this from another member:

So in order to replace the shifter handle . Slip the chrome bezel at the bottom of the handle down . That exposes the black plastic retainer , I pried it down from the handle itself with a screw driver . Now carefully slide the handle up and off the shifter lever . Pay attention that the spring in the top of the plastic part protruding from the shift lever IS IN PLACE . The spring was stuck in the handle when I pulled it off . Slide the new handle on the lever with spring in place , remove the red plastic button retainer from the new one . This is when I moved the gear selector to be sure it functions . Slide the black retainer back up , I pulled up with my fingers with my palms at the top of the handle until it popped into place . Line up the chrome bezel pop it back into place .

No offense, that is an ugly center council. Was that an after thought?

I think his is an '03, ain't it factory?

It's just a little dusty on the side. Camera's often pick up more than they eye sees in casual glances.

No offense but I think you meant console as in - Automotive . a tray or container typically divided into compartments, mounted between bucket seats, and used for storing small items.

not council as in - an assembly of persons summoned or convened for consultation, deliberation, or advice.

Well, back on topic, I am planning to try a tennis or racquetball cut down to fit and cover with black ostrich material...

Pics to come...

I had to super glue mine on a few times, but got tired of redoing it, so I pumped a bit of caulking under the cap, right in the centre, and plopped it back on.

You have to be careful not to use too much. It looks like if you do, you could clog up the button's mechanism.
