2010 Challenger 6-speed gear shift knob removal

I have looked all over the place on how to remove the 6-Speed gear shift knob from my 2010 Challenger R/T. I have gone through every step I can find, but the shift knob will not come off the shaft. Some say to put some elbow grease and twist it, some say to shimmy it an pull it, some say to remove the boot and unclip the plastic trim piece, it goes on and on.

I eventually removed the entire shaft, looking for a set screw or something, but nada. Could it be on there with a ton of lock tite? Am I missing something here? When I went to the dealer and they said it is manufactured as one part!! Does anyone have a good idea of how to do this, or is what the dealership said actually true?

Dealer is correct, if you want to change you knob w/o a hurst shifter assembly the mopar short throw shifter (P5155284AB) assembly is needed.

It's about $125 bucks online, once installed it sits lower than the stock pistol grip and will take a standard shift ball.

The dealer is correct, you cannot remove the grip. It must be removed as a lever assy and replaced with the Mopar short throw assy as stated by odi.
Why don't you just replace the whole shifter assy with a Hurst kit? The stock shifter sucks. The modified Hurst assy will make your car a totally new experience in shifting.
