    Removing trim around the gear stick and from the ash tray - how?

    Managed to change all of the door trims easily but am a little stuck on gear stick trim and don't want to damage it. Same goes for the ashtray - any tips? I'm replacing the wood trim for piano black.

    cheers!

    Remove receptacle part of ashtraythen hook fingers under front of trim and give it a firm tug upwards. The trim is only held on with clips and easily comes off - and what's more important easily goes back !!

    Just close your eyes and pull the trim.

    As said , it will pull off.

    Cheers, i'll have another go later. Got the gear lever surround off but couldn't quite see how it comes off and didn't want to risk breaking any of the clips.

    Ta!
