can any one tell me how to remove the bottom part of the center console. its the bit that gose round the gear sick and the boot relase button, heated seats and the cup holder. also dose any one know if the boot release button will fit in the hole for the heated seats. i want to put a small screen in the area wear the boot relase button is for parking sensors.
spin the gearnob off anti clockwise and then you should be able to remove the gaiter and gaiter surround (the chrome trim bit) by lifting up lightly. From there on there are just a few tabs that hold the remaining surround in. again just pull at these gently starting from the bottom and it should come away.
I replaced my gaiter and it was dead easy. Just take your time and be gentle. (p.s i didnt need any tools)
