with a small flat bladed screwdriver pry the chrome trim up from around the shifter.
Then with the same screwdriver pry the outer surround up & off. That will reveal 2 screws, Remove them.
The grip for the handbrake is tough to remove, put a few drops of liquid soap between the grip & metal to help it slide off.
At the back of the console there is a small flap of carpet (it will fold forward) & reveal 2 bolts that have to be removed.
