The oem piece is the plastic surround that the shifter boot is stapled to. No cardboard
I glued it to this plasic piece just below the lip that catches. I had my plastic piece break on one side so this keeps the original shape and gives enough resistance to keep it held down to the center console securely with no wiggle room.
Id take pictures but i fear if i Pull it out that the glue and wire will snap off since its in there really tightly. Lookin back, just standard 16g speaker wire would also do the trick and leave more room for play
