W111 - Column Shift Knob - Push on Type. How to get it off?

Iím about to change the black column shift knob to a ivory color one on my w111, 220 SE, sedan, automatic. Itís the push on type; however Iím not able to get it off. Is it just to pull and it will get off? Well, it doesnít with reasonable force. Any advices how I can get it off?

Hm, really. Ok – I may then need to change the Gearshift lever (item 388 in the pic.) – the one on the column. I may get a used one. Is there any difference of the gearshift lever for automatic and manual?

The only one I've ever removed was on my 1971 250 w114 sedan. I just unscrewed the chrome nut and pulled it out. There's a ball socket on the end. The ball on mine needs to go in far enough to make sure things don't get screwed up. I only pulled mine out to help @dgosh28 and learn more myself as he was having issues with the shifter on his car. I am now having issues with the shifter on my w108, and I may need to dig into that when I get some time.
