Don't hit yourself in the face with the knob. This has happened according to other DIY's.

isnt there a tool to do this, kinda like a fuel-line remover? something that slides up underneath and releases the clip?

I think mine has been removed one too many times (by the previous owner). An overzealous 1-2 shift has left me "holding the knob" on more than one occassion. (Yeah, I know how that sounds, no need for remarks).
Any remedies that would still allow for removal if needed?
