    I assume you do not have the centre storage box. There should be a screw under the material in the centre tray. This goes through a small bracket to hold the rear of the centre panel down. Remove this. Then remove the trim from around the gear selector. I will slide a little to the rear and then lift up. The wooden centre panel should then lift up from the rear. The window switches an be a tight fit but it will be obvious how they come out. Easiest with the cables removed first. Refitting is pretty straightforward but if you dont get it quite right it may snag the ashtray mechanism.
