Never tried removing mine...but there is a hex head under the shifter knob, you may have to isolate the shifter itself with a pipe wrench, then use a open end wrench under the shifter knob.

if its factory, there should be a nut. If its the factory knob with no nut it will screw off. The stick is threaded on down under your boot also, that might be spinning. Best bet is to hold the stick with something while trying to take the knob off. sometimes they get super stuck on.

I tried getting one off in a vice. the threads were so rusted together that the threaded insert inside the knob was spinning.
