there is a rubber grommet like thing that the shift stick screws into on the shift knob. This is what makes it so tight. Once you break the hold the first time, you will be able to get it off when ever you want. But yeah, the fit from the factory is REAL tight. Use an open ended wrench or some ViseGrips to get that b**ch off.
