Cobalts Gear Shift Button is Stuck

I have read through all the posts I can find, and found great info to take off the trim and gear shift, but I can not get that shifter off! I know I am suppose to push down and turn counter clockwise, but it will not budge! Any ideas on how I can get this thing off?
Also I got most of the trim off around it, but I couldn't find out how to get the trim off on the sides of the shifter box, which is what I really need to do so I can see in there.
Any advice is greatly appreciated Thanks!

Stop being a panzy!! It is a bit tough but that is the way to take it off! The trim on the floor panel sides have three screws in them. You need to take off all the trim starting at the back, behind the e brake and move forward.
