Getting there
Prize the trim at the bottom of the gator attached to the centre console out and pull up over the gear knob take the one use clip off and pull the gear knob and gaitor upwards.
I fitted Pt.# 8L0863278BNRMD to mine cost £20-78 + VAT from the dealer. which is the s-line leather with an alloy sleeve and leather gaitor took about 2 mins to fit.
Fitting is the reverse and it has the one use clip already attached.
