The actual procedure I learned from my E30 Bentley service manual is to put the lever in 2nd gear, push down on the knob then quickly pull straight up. Do not twist the knob because you will break the plastic tab on the inside of it. Once you have it apart you'll see the metal slot in the top of the shift lever that the tab fits into.
