it just turns anti-clockwise - screws on and off... keep trying you should be able to get it off

Yeah even if it's glued on you have more chance of twisting it off then you do trying to pull it straight off.

Twist it with all your might anticlockwise and see what happens.

there is a secret button under the front passenger seat, it's red. Press the button and the gear knob will pop off.
