Hi everyone,

I have a 2001 1st Gen PT and I am not liking the original "Duck head" shifter. I like the looks of the later year ball shift stick and want to replace it with.

I've asked around and got a few different responses.

1) I can only use 2003~2005 sticks
2) I may loose 1st gear
3) the manual shift won't work
4) may need slight modification to work on older PT's

Can anyone 2001 owner(s) confirm or have already done it?

Thank You all in advance

I converted my 01 from the duck head to the ball style. I replaced the entire shifter unit with one from an 06. Only thing I had to change was the connecter link from the cable rod to the shifter. I used the connecter from my 01. The 01 is shorter than the 06. I found that I could have swapped the shifter shaft by itself, but it was more time and work. --- John
