I feel like water drips down the shifter stick into the trans, and a simple rubber boot fit snugly over the stick would at least help with this problem. Has anyone ever tried this or found a suitable boot? If so, I'd love to hear about that. If not, maybe I'll start the search for a proper boot.
While the link Don provided is a more elegant fix, the *traditional* fix is an inverted bucket over the shifter when parked.
Seems like the tiniest CV boot you can find might be close to doing the job.
