Corsa floor shifter trim
Posted by: DOUG WARD ()

Hi guys I am in the midst of stripping my 65 Corsa floors to install new carpets. When I removed gear shift housing from the floor, I was cleaning it & discovered that looking at the bottom of the seal plate, there is what looks like an electrical strip surrounding the shifter. I don't see any other stuff in there that would make contact with it. Does any body have the answer to my mystery ?

Same here, need a pic. There are plastic plates that go between the shifter base and the metal floor. These are an adjustment so it can slide without actually wiggling.

If it's attached to the outside of the lower edge of the aluminum, it's for the Corsa only trim housing. Maybe yours is missing.

My '66 Corsa has the Teflon rectangles and also has an aluminum/steel (?) shim matching rectangle that the Teflon plate sits in to.
