Twist & pull usually does the trick it is bonded onto the splines - I destroyed my wooden one:

Re: gear stick removal

Yeah - quite hard work to remove it. If you have an Alfa specialist somewhere near you they might have the tool that is made specifically for the job - thats what I used in the end. It basically pushes from the bottom upwards (with a screw kind of mechanism) and eventually the knob pushes off the stick. Pliers and a hacksaw might be needed otherwise!

And if trying to twist/pull it off, be very carefulthat you don't have your head immediately above hurts when you punch yourself on the chin........(so I'm told )
