Default Removing gearshift

Do you really need a special tool to remove the gearshift **** in a D2 A8?

Put the car in neutral, then pull out on the shift button enough to where you can slip a zip tie in between the button and the shifter, now just pull up as hard as you can.

Default thnx

thanx auditech but the problem was that my shift button was stuck i had to have some one remove the piece that pulls the wire that releases the key. i was told i have to replace the whole shift handle but i cant afford that rite now so is it ok to have that piece out for a short period of time?
