    Hi

    You move the selector to neutral position , put yourself on the driver seat on your knees, then pull up in a snap motion i.e quick pull, be very carefull not to bang your head on rear view mirror, dont ask how i know lol!

    I changed my wood style vavona for the aluminium trim!

    good luck!

    Yes if it's just the knob you want to change then stick it in neutral an pull - very hard and it will come.

    I'd be more worried about knocking your own teeth out!!
