    hi guys , got it sorted ....for anybody who maybe in the same boat ..

    underneath the gater there is a little clip round the bottom of shifter grab some pliers & loosen this clip , but ign on place car in N pull the button out ( tape the button up so that it does not go back in , if it does you cant put back on )...once button out stand with one foot in each footwell & give the shifter a good yank ..( nearly put knob instead of shifter then ...lmfao )...& then it should pull off along with gater & gear indicater
