there will be two flat openings in the plastic retainer thing sorry lol, the easiest way is to place two criss cross flat head screw drivers into these openings push out and turn the plastic ring, I forget if it's clock-wise or counter clock-wise but by turning those it will release the shift lever from the carrier

^^ Yup. WHat he said. Turn the bushing anti-clockwise with a couple of flat-head screwdrivers.

There is an entire DIY here:
