I think the car must be in neutral position in order to slide the chrome cover down. Please observe proper safety when performing this work.@sparty18 It's been a minute since I did it last, but I remember it being very easy to do. I think all you need to do is slide down the chrome sleeve below the knob. Then there is a small horseshoe shaped metal clip right below the knob that can be removed using needle nose pliers. Pull off that clip and the knob should come come right up. Good luck!
