The Tri-Ax/ is more than just a short handle. We re-engineered the entire shift mechanism with an improved pivot ratio so you can enjoy faster shifts without having to bend down to reach the shift knob. The throws are shorter and the shift knob is located in a more comfortable position than the factory shifter, without being too short like other ''short throw'' shifters that are really nothing more than a chopped down stick. The Tri-Ax/Fâ„¢ is manufactured with heavy-duty parts to withstand abuse, including a CNC-machined steel shaft and billet aluminum reverse lock*.
Installation can be done by the do-it-yourselfer with basic hand tools. The Tri-Ax/Fâ„¢ is available for all Zetec and SVT Focus with a manual transmission. See the "How To Identify Your Shifter" below to find the right one for your car. The improved factory cable arrangement of this shifter reduces flex and improves precision. This is the slickest shifting Tri-Ax/Fâ„¢ yet! Installation is so simple it can be done by a first-timer in less than 30 minutes.
How To Identify Your Shifter
Ford changed the shifter design of all Zetec Focus built on or after April 2002. You can visually identify which one you have by looking at the factory shift knob in this picture.
