Pull up the leather boot at the console. It's just clipped in and can be pried up with your fingers. The boot is wrapped around a plastic ring that snaps into the console. Pull the boot up and get access to the bottom of the knob. You will have to pry open the one time use crimp ring with a small screwdriver or awl. Then pull off the knob. Use a small hose clamp as a replacement. Redlinegoods .com makes great replacement leather boots.

but be careful. the knob won't just slide off. you'll have to pull hard and it'll be VERY easy to hit yourself in the face.
