Yup, yank and twist at the same time, there really is no other way.  Sit in the driver seat, and yank it towards you while twisting.

+1 for "pull and twist" or "yank towards the cabin, arcing towards the roof" method. You really need to give it a proper, sharp pull though. The first time I did this I was certain I've just destroyed the damn thing, but it's tougher than it looks.
