I would expect that the shift knob screws off, but mine seems extremely reluctant to unscrew. I remember something about knobs changing in 03 - was it a style change or did the mounting style change too?

Same knob for all US TTs, although europe changed theirs to an all aluminum, one-piece, knob in 2002-2003.

Yes, it just screws off but requires some real torque. Mine was very difficult to unscrew and I ended up cracking the small plastic internal connector ring between the aluminum sleeve and the knob. But it did not matter to me as my OEM knob was severely ring-scratched and I was replacing it with the euro alum knob.
