Ok, on an auto its easy.on a manual it should be the same, put it in the neutral position and pull up, do not have you face over the knob or teeth will be lost,there maybe a small hex screw at the bottom,as you havent specified model im unable to advise further

Generally speaking, like marti5 said, put it in neutral and pull up hard. Better to tell us what model you drive.
