SOURCE: removal of gear shift knob
There are two types of shift knobs. One that unscrews and one that the lower trim of the shift knob separates from the knob using a trim stick. After separating the lower trim from the knob pull upward to release the knob from the shift lever. If a new shifter assembly is being installed, unscrew the original shift knob or separate the lower trim from the knob and pull up to remove the knob from the shift lever. Screw the knob onto the new shifter assembly's lever no more than 14 turns or install the lower trim onto the shift lever then push the knob onto the shift lever and install the lower trim piece onto the shift knob.

If it is neither suggestion by bunnydawg, try looking on the back of the shifter for a metal staple that needs to be pulled out.

SOURCE: Gear shift knob
The shifter knobs on these vehicles is installed very very tightly.
I have never been able to remove one without ruining it by tearing the cover, which should not be a big issue since you're replacing it.
The knob threads on like a nut would (lefty-loosy, righty-tighty). I use a large set of channel-lock pliers and they are still tough to break loose.
Good luck and I hope that this is helpful!

On my 2000 jetta glx, I had to replace both the shift knob and boot as one. It is built as one unit. You have to pull the boot up over the shift knob, break/bend a clip to "unlock" the shift knob then pull up. I hope the new knob you got has the boot built in and comes with a new clip.
