Greetings from Virginia, USA, near Washington DC.
I removed the knob from our c280 by removing the plastic logo on top of the
knob (it will snap back into place). Remove the nut underneath. The knob
itself is a two-piece affair, separated by a fine seam about a third of the
way up from the bottom. Grasp the bottom and top, and twist in opposite
directions- the knob should then lift off the stem.
Hope this works on your model!
Sorry that didn't work out for you- I know it's infuriating not being able
to figure it out. I sat there twisting, turning, pushing and pulling, and
finally gave up in disgust. My wife figured it out shortly afterward.

Twist the plastic part at the bottom of the gear knob, it should turn
about 1/2 turn then you can simply pull the gear knob upwards and off
I haven't forgotten your heater control unit either, bear with me....
