I dont think it was so much faulty, as it was just cheaply made. Lol

Saturn S series manual shift knobs are NOT glued or threaded on....as i have read elsewhere.
I also tried using the rubber mallet/hammer trick to release it.....which i saw on U-tube....no luck.

My suggestions/what worked for me:
Sit in the drivers seat with your right shoulder placed on the passengers seat(U may want to recline it some)....this keeps your head/face out of the way from the line of force.
Place your left hand on the low side of shift knob and place your right hand over top of it on the lower side as well.
Grip tight and pull hard, as U apply a Very Slight Twisting motion back and forth.

The shaft has a D shape to it, so twisting it much is not an option.
The knob also has a female D shape. It has 2 spring loaded ears of wire inside to engage in 2 grooves cut on the shaft. The twisting motion and pulling helps walk out the retainer springs from the grooves in the shaft.

Good luck!
