yes it will fit, but the collar of your knob will need to be firmled gripped and pulled HARD onto the shaft of your stick. It won't full engage as your knob is too big, but it will hold on if you are firm with it
They modifed the shift lever for the '04 model, by adding a bit of plastic on the top of that flange, where the base of the knob rests.
To accomodate that added material, I had to remove about .045" of steel from the end of that inner sleeve.
Since I learned of the change, I've been making all the of the knobs that way. Of course, they will fit a pre-'04 shift lever just fine.
To get an older knob to fit on a newer lever, you'll need to remove that bit of steel from the end of the sleeve.
Takes me about five minutes; but it would be tough to do, without access to a lathe.
