Here is how I did it. First, get a good pair of gloves. You want to cut the plastic cover off of the gear shift. Then, with a pair of locking pliers, twist hard. The white plasic knob will strip out and off of the gear shift, its ribbed, and from what I can tell, its made to only go on. The gloves are for when you cut the plastic cover off. You dont want to end up in the er, and one slip is all it takes. But as with many things, YMMV.
