    Although my car has only 893 miles, someone must have driven it with heavy rings on their right fingers. My shift knob and hand brake trim are scratched and I have ordered new parts. I believe that the shift knob simply snaps off if pulled upward. The hand brake trim is still a mystery to me. It should slide forward if you can disengage the clip on the top near the rear of the part. Hopefully someone with experience will guide us.

    I have never removed the hand brake, but the shift knob is just a click on part, just pull it up hard, it is easier if the car is in 2nd or 4th gear so you don't disturb anything as you pull it up.

    How about N? My shifter and handbrake are completely scratched up and pitted from my cufflinks.
