How do you take off auto shift knob

How do you take off auto shift knob

I have read the DIY for removing shift knob and most of the discussions are related to pulling off manual shift knob. Any ideas if it's the same thing for auto? Just pull it up straight without pressing the shift button ?

Thank you guys....

You can also put it in N if it works for you. I moved the seat up a little bit and used my elbow as leverage.

Do you push the shifter button in while you are pulling up? Or do you not push it in while pulling?

I have tried this technique on my E46 and was never able to pull hard enough. I always felt I would break something.

don't worry about the button. My e46 was MUCH harder to remove also. My e90 was easy!

I did not push the shifter button. I did it from the passenger seat following some of the advice in previous postings. 5-10 seconds of pulling up and you're done.
