I'm not sure exactly how it works on your car, but on my SD, you take the ashtray out, then take the "frame" for the ashtray out (a couple of screws), then there are a couple more screws down in there, holding the front of the wood down. Once those are removed, the whole wood piece around the gearshift can be lifted. Hopefully yours is similar, if not the same. Just be careful, and don't force it...It's easy to crack the wood, or the plastic backing under it.
