NOTE: Applies to the 5-speed manual transmission ONLY.

The knob is simply an interference fit, pushed on. So it just pulls off. There are many approaches, but to avoid banging yourself in the head (or elsewhere), here's what to do.

Sit in the driver's seat. Put the shifter in neutral or second gear. "Lace" the fingers of both hands under the knob. Pull upward with all your might. Use your entire back (optionally, pivot your body at the waist), as if you're pulling a weed or pull-starting a lawn mower engine, for the most leverage. The knob will just pull off.

You may need to use a "set screw" on the side of the knob to keep an aftermarket knob in place.
