    Center Console trim installation

    My center console trim below the emergency brake is badly scratched and I just received a new part. What I can't figure out is how hard is it to install this trim for someone who is a novice? Is this somthing i need to have the BMW Service dept do or is it as easy as replacing the shift knob, door handle trim, etc?

    I spent about 30 minutes trying to remove the center console tray without success. In the end, I sent the new part to Peter Pan to install on the car.

    I've never attempted it so I am really not sure, but if you download the parts catalogue in the History section > PDF thread, it should give you a decent visualization of how its held in place.
