I belive it is possible turn the round thing at the bottom and remove it up


The inside of the bottom of the shifter extension contains a "C" clip which holds the shifter extension on to the shifter stub . I use a very small pair of needle nose pliers to grab the "C" clip in the holes. I haven't found snap ring pliers strong enough to do the job hence the needle nose pliers with the long nose bent into a 90 degree angle. The clip is strong but removable
