Open the roof, remove the roof side bars, remove the seats using a Torx 45 screwdriver
and unbolt the seatbelt from the seat side using a 17mm hexagon socket. If you have
seat heaters or side airbags then you need to disconnect those too.
Just under the handbrake is a cap, lever this out and remove the Torx 15 screw underneath.
At the back of the handbrake surround is a catch that slides out as shown.
Pull the gear knob off (don't twist and don't press the button as you pull).
