Automatic shift knob removal...

Just curious if anyone has any idea on how to remove the shift knob on an automatic? I have an 09 SXT. Thanks.

Even though it's an automatic? It must be pretty difficult because I've had no luck with that so far.

Ya, I read the thread on the guy that did that. I got it off after I jump over to the passenger seat and pulled with my shoulder rather than my arm. Honestly, the shift knobs aren't made for the thinner shafts and are loose anyway so it wasn't all that worth it but I'll run what I put on there until something better comes along.
