    Tools Required:
    Hands
    Car
    Automatic transmission
    2.5mm Allen Key

    Step 1.
    Start the car.
    Put it in Drive.
    Pull the E-Brake

    Step 2.
    Grab the chrome piece at the bottom of the shifter and Twist it Counter Clock Wise WHILE pushing it down. Here is what you will get:

    Step 3.
    Located on the exposed brown plastic on the backside of the shifter is a screw. Get your Allen Key and unscrew it a couple of turns, you don't have to take it all the way out.

    Step 4:
    Pull it off and you now have successfully removed your automatic shift knob :D

    Hopefully I won't have to explain how to put it back on........
