i used a clean flat wallpaper scrapper with a bit of kitchen towel for protection... and gently lifted the silver surround from the front (the bit nearest the handbrake) once thats off just unscrew the gear head. bare in mind the leather and silver trim are all attached... hope this helps

Has someone been scanning their Haynes manual?

If so: Refitting is the reverse of removal!!!
