if its a corsa b you just have to pull like fuck but try to hold the bottom of the stick so you dont do any damage!! sometimes twisting it a litlle helps to work it off

take off the gear gaiter and pull out the pin holding the gear stick in place. Then sling it in a vice or something and pull the gearknob off.
