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.

If still can't get it out drill a hole down the center of the pin and screw a screw in the hole and attach the vicegrips to the screw and pull it out.

Why did they feel the need to use that pin? We finally got it out with me prying and my wife pulling with pliers.

Make sure you whack yourself in the face with the pliers when the pin comes out unexpectedly. LOL

I must of gotten lucky, all I had to do was carefully move the pin back and forward while pulling up, it came right out! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif
