The shift handle pulls straight up and off. It is TIGHT so you need to get into a good position so you can pull hard on it but it will (!) come off if you pull straight up hard enough. Odds are the little plastic rod inside the vertical part of the shifter that the button pushes downward on has broken. Replacing it is simple.
