    Just pull up as you spin it. It has a ton of threads, so keep spinning, and pulling, and it should pop off. They are on there pretty good though. Also look for a retainer or snap ring around the base.

    Maybe the leather is spinning on the knob? My 98 does this.

    Mine was doing this at one point. I simply took an old dish towel wrapped it around the shift knob as to keep from scarring it and then used a large pair of channel locks to grip it and get it turning.
