1. Remove Shift Knob: Pry up the plastic shift pattern on the tip of the shift knob. Remove the aluminum pressure pin using a flat head screw driver and a vise-grip. Fasten the vise grip to the pin and insert screw driver under tab and pry up. Note: If pin won’t move use some spray lube or liquid wrench to loosen up. Unscrew the shift knob.

First pop off the shift pattern with a flatbed screwdriver. Next you need to remove the T shaped pin which holds the shift know in place. It's really wedged in and it'll take some effort to get it out. I grabbed it with a pair of strong pliers and then pried up with the flatbed screwdriver. I was worried about damaging the leather on the shift knob at first but all my efforts produced no ill effects. Once you remove the pin, just unscrew the shift knob.
