start the car, put it in drive, throw up the ebrake, then grab the chrome piece and twist and pull it down, then either on the front or back, there is a small allen head screw, just loosen it and pull it off

You dont even have to start the car, just turn the key enough to put into drive and turn key off. YOU STILL HAVE TO HAVE E BRAKE ON. But just like above without engine running and risk of brake popping loose and bad stuff happening.

I still haven't found anyway to get the Auto knob off on the 09-10 that have the boot around them.
I want to paint the silver part of mine to match the dash trim.
