Trim removal on auto

Ive been trying to remove the trim around the gear shift for a while, but cant figure how it comes apart (being careful not to break anything)? The car is a Spider Q-tronic Auto? I managed to get the central dash apart for a radio swap, just not the gear shift part? Doesn't seem to want to pull apart like the manual cars? Any advice?

REMOVAL
to remove the shift gate put the handbrake on, select neutral and then turn ignition off and remove key.
On the bottom of the gear knob is a small chrome ring, push this downward then do the same with the chrome sleeve that sits over the stick, then pull the "trigger " on the gearknob and pull upwards, now the knob is removed you can remove the shift gate and alloy trim in one piece, lever under the alloy trim on the edge nearest the handbrake get your fingers in and pull upwards, it will feel like you are going to break it but keep pulling it will come up!
Then remove the multi plugs and remove it all.
