    I'm changing some of my cabin plastics including my centre console and have hit a problem with the handbrake cover. It looks like the leather grip needs to come off in order to take the plastic cover off but I can't woprk out if it's possible. can anyone help?

    It's a right bloody faff to get it off. I took the handle bit and the gaiter. Getting it back on (properly) is even more fun!

    that bit worked well enough and I took pics. unfortunately the driver's seat has lost power fully back so I can't even drive it like that. see the project thread here
    I'll add pics of the handbrake cover removal there too

    I agree mate. I haven't put anything back on yet as I'm waiting for a few bits to come through that weren't in with the big stuff. I'm currently sporting a black & grey centre console theme. very nice :)
