Step1: Use a flat screw to pull the middle counsole clip up gentally. After it' up, you can see it's stick with the shiftboot together! Don't do anything for it, after it's up, it will be more easier to take out the shift knob!

Step2: Use your car key to turn to the second stage, not to drive ur car, just the second stage which you can see the cluster light is on, then pull your shift knob to "N or R" it's up to you, but remember..make sure your handbrake is pull up before you do that!

Step3: As many people saids just pull up as hard as you can.....they're right! this will totally work, but you need to sit in a right position to do that so!
Sit at the center and two legs on the seat, open the roof window!

Step4: Try use both hand to turn a littlebit "left & right" for the shift knob before pull it up, this will help it more easiely to pull up. After you do this step, just pull it up, and it will pop out!

This is a very easy step to do so, Hope it's help, I do this my own and it works!
Where is middle console? Can you please explain? I also want to change my shift knob.
