Next step is to remove the "key" that prevents the **** from rotating on the shaft.
The "key" can be a b!tch to get out ... some people find that locking a ViseGrip on it and pulling straight up works ..... I believe those guys also wrestle in the WWF. Another choice is to take a screwdriveer and try and pry it out .... the handle of the screwdriver will be close to the radio and the blade will be pointing to the back of the car .... try to not lever against the leather shift ****. For more ideas search the forum for the phrase "demon key" as that is what most people refer to it as once they have tried to take it out. Be patient ... a couple of days and you'll have it out ....
Once the key is out ... unscrew the **** from the shaft.
clamp the needle nose vicegrips on the demon key.

Pretend you are a dentist pulling out a took and wiggle the vice grips front to back pulling up
