Blow torch! lol

BUt seriously, best best it to cut the bloody thing off, theyre heated up when they are fitted so its an absolute b**ch to get off. We tried using a heat gun to reverse the fitting process but failed and ended up cutting it off.
 


He has bought a Blue LED gear knob and you guys are telling him how to put it on - disgrace to you all!! :p
 


I pulled the top part of mine off, but but how do you get the plastic bit of underneath to enable to you put the new Gear knob on??
