Random question chaps and chappesses

I've managed to screw up the rubber trim that sits near the gear lever on my auto.

I think it's come off the rollers or whatever holds it in place.

Was just wondering how easy the plastic rectangular surround comes off, that sits on top of the aluminium part. It's got the winter/sport button and a couple of others.

It looks like it might just snap out, but didn't know if anyone had tried removing it, or had any experience

Thanks for reading

I did, although it was only by buying a new unit unfortunately.

Had to buy the whole surround, which was about £200 plus fitting.

The annoying thing was, I got the broken part and had a look inside and a small piece of fabric no bigger than 2mm square, that lined the runners had come off and jammed the mechanism.

Of course, being a modern car, you have to buy a completely new unit rather than just somehow getting hold of the relatively cheap part that actually broke.

Probably not what you wanted to hear, but good luck!
