It held on by some kind of glue. You just have to pull it straight up to get it off but its really well glued in there. I haven't tried to take mine off yet.

My old one came off just by twisting really hard but I believe there are teeth in there that broke off when that happened...

Just do what I did in my '95. Go off mudding! And before you know it it will fall off from the hard shifting.

its the plastic surrounding the stick, not the cup holders. its surrounding the stick all the way down to the floor into the little bumps.

hmmm...no comment necessary...haha
sorry, had to

I've tried to take mine off a few times, but honestly I failed every time... it may not be as easy as you think...if you are ok with damaging the original ****, try using heat and or a press of some sort
