Gear knob and leather surround

How easy is it to replace the gear knob and surround?
It tried pulling the leather up, but was met with a lot of reistance.
Also, i've no idea how to take the old knob off.
Any help appreciated.

Hi, I have a 318i E90 (55) and have been looking for an answer on this too. The fella who previously owned mine must have worn a knuckle duster 24/7 as my is scratched all to hell. I hear that on the old touring it was a simple case of pulling the thing off.... well not so simple really.
