Welcome to the forum. I believe you talking about the shift knob/ball itself? The best way to remove it is sit between the seats have the shifter between your legs and start to pull upwards towards your head. I would start slowly to see if you can wackle the shift knob a little and than start pulling on it. The knob is on pretty tight but it will come loose after a while. Just make sure you keep you face away when you pull really hard on it you can a bloody nose really easy. Hope that will help you.
