About one of the easiest projects you can do for the Volvo C30 is replacing the gearshift knob and boot assembly. Over time, the knob and boot are exposed to constant wear and tear. Replacing the knob and boot is super easy and should take no more than 5 minutes. Simply pry the base of the gearshift boot up and out of the center console and then push down on the knob and turn it counter-clockwise. This unlocks the knob from the gear lever. Simply pull the boot up and off, then install the new one, rotate it clockwise to lock it in place and fit the boot back into the center console.

Shown here is the gearshift knob and boot assembly for the Volvo C30.
