If you pull the boot off, where the shifter goes into the tower there is a cap that screws on the tower around the shifter unscrew the cap and pull the shifter up.

Just thinkin when u pull the shifter out there is a little pin or 2 can't remember how many but is loose in the tower so be careful they don't fall into the tranny.

possibly not a t18


push down on where the shifter enters the tranny -Its probably spting loaded ----when youve pushed down spin the holder counter clockwise to release the shifter

Yep Bruce is right, there is usually only the 2 ways to get the shifter out of the top of the tower style trannys
