The trim piece that clips the boot into the center console pulls up very easily. You shouldn't need to use too much force. Getting my OEM knob off the shifter was a PIA. I used a lot of force and still couldn't get it off until I pried apart the plastic piece that clamps the knob on. That may have just been because I have a UUC shifter and may be much easier with the stock shifter.
