The gearstick trim simply pops up , use a flat screw driver (small) cover it in a duster and then get inbetween the plastic silver trim and once you have space use your fingers to pull it up , you may be able to get the the secureing screws for the garage door , if not then you have to remover the center console.
if you look at my guide for the Cup Holder LED's it will show you how
Cheers pree when you say securing screws for the garage door are they a pain to get at or should i get to them after taking the demister switches out ?
Two screws hold in a retaining plate at the bottom of the garage door , i can't remember if you can get to them just by lifting the gear stick gater surround or not. If not then you may have to lift out the Center top section of the center console.
which is included in the cup holder guide
Very true , i'm the same on the Mk3 , i just have to see how it comes apart and there's always the chance of pulling too hard at the trim lol
