Default Gear knob removal

Just bought a new gearstick gaiter for my 407 and looking for a tip on changing it - does the ball part of the gearstick screw off or is there some kind of release mechanism involved. Had a look at servicebox and from the diagrams it seems obvious that the lift-for-reverse collar stays on which shouldn't be a problem.

I just don't wanna bust something on the inside when I just spent 2 weeks fixing everything on the outside heh

Yikes - you aren't kidding. Did a little googling and I've read stories of people knocking the rearview mirror off because they had to pull so hard to get the gearknob off!!! Wish me luck lol

I couldn't find any 407 specific stuff but plenty of stories about 20* and 30* cars and I figure they're probably close enough....

Sit on the arm rest with a leg either side. Pretty easy to avoid hitting the mirror that way.

Hi Guys. Please, can someone confirm. Is it just a matter of pulling of without any twisting? Just don't want to damage anything.
