Ignition on, engine off. Apply brake, shift back to D or lower. Now look at the base of the shifter (Cobra head in your case). See the forward facing lower part of the base that has a slot?

Use a small screwdriver to pry that clip out. Then lift up on the shifter.

Cfoote has the wood kit. It looks very good with one exception. The lock and window switch pods. Because the 96+ ones have a bubbled look to the plastic the wood trim sits up pretty high. It is not moulded to the shape of the switches.
