N-Line DCT Shift Knob - Has anyone installed?

Has anyone installed this? Or does anyone know how to remove the stock DCT knob? I was told that it should pull of while in N with the button pressed, but mine won't budge.
I already ordered, trusting the reviews on ease of installation, but I can't get the stock off.
Thanks!

Rarely are shift knobs ever as straightforward to replace as aftermarket companies claim. If the factory one isn't secured with a screw, I would imagine its a very tight fit. Can the boot be moved at all to confirm how its attached?

Not from what I was able to do, I tried a few different things to detach the boot with no luck.

Did you ever get the knob off? I saw that someone on another forum installed one and said it took a lot of force to pull it off.

I got it all set a while back, I pressed the brake when I tried it and it came right off.

Terrible.
I hear even the new Velosters have similar build quality issues which isn't a good look while trying to launch N versions.
Honda's might be priced more but they don't have these problems.

Its too bad that aftermarket brands haven't offered aftermarket parts like this. I expected to see at least some small scale efforts done via group buys but there's none.

What is terrible? Who is talking about build quality? Did you mean to post that comment on another post?
