Hello All,

Does anyone know if the T-Handle shifter from the 2018 Genesis is able to be retrofitted to a 2015 Genesis sedan?

Thank you!

there's a non-electronic version of the shifter as well for the base models. i'm curious to try it too, but I haven't pulled the trigger yet.
where did you see that? can you post a link?

I ordered the replacement part and will take it to a local shop -stay tuned!
Have you seen any tutorial on a removal of the shifter knob? On my previous car, it was as simple as twisting the knob from the boot and a quick jerk up to remove it. It may be more difficult with the release linkage but it does look like the Shift Lever Assemblies for both models were the same.

I have not. I know one of the service writers pretty well at this point (lots of trips for little issues recently, along with 5+ yrs of going there with my Sonata). I'll have him and his rep give it a shot. If it doesn't work out I'll return it.

Doubt it is a direct swap, at least into the 1G BH models. The 1G shift knob doesn't have a button incorporated and is removed by pulling upward on it as hard as you can. Might be possible for the 2G DH models but I dont know if the knob is different between 1G and 2G models. So can't say.

Interested to see if it is possible though.

He’s trying to put it in a DH.

Parts have been shipped! I will post some pics of the parts once they come in, but I am out on vacation next week so I won't know for sure if this will work for another 2 weeks most likely.

Subscribed! I do like the look of that new shifter and I hope it works out for you. The link above says the part is only about $100. That seems unbelievably reasonable for a car part.
