Default How To Do 5AT Shifter Direction (Triptronic) Mod

Courtesy of from Waz350GT from http://g35driver.com/

-----

So I decided on something a little easier with the same result.

Just to remind everyone, this will make it:

PULL BACK = Next Gear
PUSH FORWARD = Previous Gear

And the best part? It takes 15mins or less, uses $2 worth of connectors, and is totally reversible in a matter of seconds!

Tools Needed:
- side cutters
- pliers
- 2*blade connectors - female
- 2*blade connectors - male
- electrical tape

Time Needed:
15mins





Picture 1:
  • Pull the centre part of your dash off using info on these forums
  • You will see a few wires which run around behind the gear selector and these are involved in the tiptronic switching
  • Locate the 2 wires which send the signal back to the ECU when the gear has been manually changed
  • The colors you are looking for are DARK GREEN and LIGHT GREY
  • Note that there is also a light green wire so don't get confused

Picture 2:
  • Cut these 2 wires and strip all 4 free ends
Click the image to open in full size.





Picture 3:
  • Attach the male and female ends of the blade connectors using the pliers to hold the wires in place. You could probably solder them if you could be bothered.
Click the image to open in full size.






Picture 4:
  • Connect the wires
  • The key here is that you want to swap the wires around so that the grey is now connecting with the green for both wires
  • Note that as you have used blade connectors, it is very easy to simply pull out the connector and put the configuration back to normal if you ever want to!

Picture 5:
  • Using electrical tape, cover the exposed metal of the connectors and put the wires back into their normal position. You can hardly notice that anything is done! Put your trim back in place

Test Drive:
Amazing, simply amazing. Itís stupid that it wasn't this way to start with.

Summary:
This is a DIY that costs the price of a box of connectors and takes about 15mins to do. Not only that, but it is completely reversible in the event that you change your mind!

I'm going to get some custom stickers made up that have a " + " and " - " sign on them for completeness. They will be black like the P-R-N-D indicator on the other side of the shifter

Enjoy!

I believe this only works for the tiptronic (automanual shifting), its just reversing the way you switch gears in manual mode.......instead of pulling back to downshift you'd be pushing forward and vice versa.

Man that totally makes sense. I tried speed shifting it in manual mode a few days ago and it just doesn't feel right the way Mother Nissan built it.

I wonder if this has anything to do with those guys driving on the wrong side of the car?

I'm gonna try this one out just to see how it feels.

Keep us updated on what you find to replace the + and - logos.

After having my max 8yrs, this would just mess me up.

However, I could see modding the steering wheel to add some F1 type shifting with this info. hmmmmm

Probably one of my top favorite mods!
This is how the shifting is done in M3's, plus this feels way more natural
