2003 Jetta 5-speed gear shift lever boot replacement

My wife has a Jetta and the factory boot cover for the gearshift level has become worn out and just ugly.



I bought an aftermarket replacement boot, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the old boot off without damaging the surrounding materials.



Any help would be appreciated.
