    Wood Gear Knob Removal?

    Hi guys, im in a bit of a rut and needing some help/advice, basically I own a 52 plate 1.6 16v Comfort model, which being the "hoity-toity" version has these minging looking wooden effect bits inside it, including the centre console and gearknob

    I've got an SXI matt aluminium console and irmscher matt aluminium gearknob on order from the Vauxhall dealership and having changing the centre console previously Im confident of doing that no bother, however, wondering what the best way of removing the wooden gearknob is, the how-to guide for the standard rubber one is no use to me as the wood effect one is solid plastic instead of rubber, not to fussed about butchering the knob but dont want to break my gearstick in the process, so how do I do it?

    cheers.

    my sxi has a back center consol not aluminium. cut the gear knob off with a saw, get someone to hold in and cut it just of center that way you should miss the gear stick
