    you just unscrew it.... its pretty tight at first, and you have to turn it for forever, but it will come off. then when its off it just takes a little pulling to get the boot detached from the knob...

    If it's ONLY a knob, then just take off the stock knob by unscrewing it (like 100 turns lol) and then putting the new one on. Simple as that!

    Don't be shy, untwist that bad boy til it comes off the shifter, then grab the boot with one hand, and the knob with the other. Twist and PULL. The boot will snap right off the knob. Again, don't be afraid to put some muscle into it
