Just the knob itself? It should just screw off.

That's how it has been on the past models... Unless they changed it for the '13, even if they did it can't be all too difficult.

Don't let these guys fool you! You're gonna be twisting that thing till you're blue in the face! I'll tell you exactly how to remove your shift knob.

Step 1. With the car in neutral, apply the parking brake.

Step 2. While in the passenger seat, strap on your seat belt. (To prevent your body from going into a death spin while applying the required amount of torque required to remove said knob.

Step 3. Position your feet on the dashboard directly over the passenger airbag cover.

Step 4. With both hands, grip the shift knob and squeeze as if you had GI•Joes kung foo grip.

Step 5. And this may be the most important step of them all. Recite the pledge of allegiance with your head between your knees.

Step 6. Twist shift knob counter clockwise with all you might and the knob should spin loose after a brief moment of giving up but then giving it one last go for good measure.

And that is how it's done. Good luck!

Yeah, you're gonna have to start over but you'll have to wait 6 days and try it again at sunrise with you car facing true north.

If you muttered through the steps your knob might give at any moment!

Looks good though!
