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.
