You have to decompress the jack first.

Do this by twisting the knob counterclockwise I believe.

I think you should be able to do it by hand. Lowering the jack will release it, and when you want to put it back, just jack it up a little until it sits snugly.

Factory jacks are a pain in the ass, your arm is damn near about to fall off by the time the car is lifted. I would invest in a better jack thumbsup

Squeeze the jack with your right hand. Twist the knob clockwise. Jiggle the jack a little. Slide it out of the bottom plate and remove it out of the top notch where the jack is held in place.
