a lot of us have. i did break my clip, broke one ... wing? off it still clipped fine when i put it back on. Follow the how tos and directions you can find online. use a socket to make sure they release evenly.

i'm trying to be careful with it it just doesn't seem to want to come off, i broke a little of the back of it off (the flat part) and there seems to be a little piece of thin metal behind that as well. is that also connected to the piece?

Mine wasn't that hard. I have an 03 and the shifter is different. Mine was basically the whole shifter assembly 3 or 4 screws and pop off 1 or 2 linkages. Gotta love the 02.5 and up shifters!
