How to Remove Shift Lever Boot

I have a 2009 Cobalt LS automatic transmission, and need to replace the shift lever knob cause the plastic piece you use to depress to shift the trans just falls out. I understand that the shift lever knob has a allen screw you need to loosen or take out to replace the knob but I don't know how to remove the shift lever boot to get to the screw, I just don't want to start prying on things and break something. Can any one tell me how to get this boot off without screwing something up? Thanks in advance.

You have to twist counter clockwise the part of the booth closest to the bottom of the knob. I just hot glued mine in place.

How to remove shift lever boot

Coby7, thanks for the help. I wasn't sure if that was the correct way or not. I had watched a youtube video and that's how a guy removed, what looked like a chrome piece from his shift lever, didn't know if that applied to the boot as well. Now I know. Thanks again
