Removing it is fairly straight forward. The gaitor (spelling?) is secured to the circular trim ring around the bottom. This pulls straight up, may need some force... Then the knob pulls up off the gear stick. The knob and gaitor are connected and come off as one part. There's a plastic ring securing the gaitor to the gear knob.

As the gaitor is connected in this way I'm not sure you could use any old aftermarket knob...

The JCW knob is very nice and sometimes crops up cheap on Ebay...
