You can just unscrew the thing. Use a thick cloth like mf towel to protect the surface and give you a decent grip.

Knob is removable, just turn clock wise and counter clock wise, some times and knob will be off. You may buy an aftermarket knob los TWM for cars with reserve gear lever, looks mine

If it doesn't unscrew, you can remove the cap and there will be a screw holding it down. Remove the screw/bolt and it will come off.
I took mine off on my eco and there was no screw. It was pressed on, I had already torn it up so I took a dremel to it and cut it off and got one of those universal knobs and that's what's on it now. I'll see if I can find the pieces of the knob, I thought I kept them for reference. If I can find the pieces, I'll post a picture.

That is not correct.

I have a 2013 Cruze. The shift knob is threaded on.
Well I don't know what to believe anymore! I have a 13 and it is press fit. When I worked at Thayer Chevy, all of GM's diagrams had a press fit assembly too. Duvall, did yours have a screw under the cap then?

No, I just gave it a twist and it started turning. It then came off and the shift lever was threaded.

I hope someone else has a '13 with a threaded lever. I am really not special.

I have a 2013 Cruze and just replaced mine.
It was a pain to get off and the new one on.
Remove the outer leather cover and then pretty much just twist and do whatever you can to get it off (it’s not a screw)
Replacement needs to carefully be placed on with a mullet.
