I did a little digging but couldnt find anything specific...does anyone have a way to make a standard trans shift knob work on the Neon automatic shifter? I want to put a t-handle on it, but I cant figure out how to make it snug yet at the same time be able to be pushed down to select gears.

Thanks!

Lizey, do you have your heart set on a t-handle type? If not, i'm pretty sure you can make a PT cruiser ball type shifter work in your car...

What model year, is your Neon ??

If it is a 2002-2005..... You should be able to use the PT Cruiser ATX shifter pictured above .
(I have not tried this myself, but I think it would work.)

For the older 2000-2001 model years, you may be able to switch to a 1st gen Neon shifter handle.
( Disclaimer: I have not tried this myself, so I don't know if it will work, or what the level of difficulty is.)
The 1st gen Neon ATX shifters, are not a real 'T-handle' like an early 70's MoPar; but they do have the shifter button located on the driver's side... so they are 'kinda' like a T-Handle.

I have a couple of 1st gen ATX shifter assemblies out in the garage.
I should try them out and see if they can work on the 2001 ATX. Smile
