It unscrews from the floor only, they said I could remove just the handle part but I almost lost a tooth trying, they made a chrome one i saw on ebay once and the pic showed the entire unit with a plate at the bottom.
I know that's not much help, but try to put it in neutral and taking(pulling?) it off, I wasn't successful.
PS What do you own?
I use a Jeep
