Removing Shift lever
I would like to remove my standard shift lever on my '87 420SEL and replace it with a wood unit. I know how to remove the wood console panel, but upon examination I could not figure out how to remove the notched plate that covers the shift lever mounting point (the black one with P R D 4 3 2 on it) which exposes the rubber boot covering the end of the shift lever. I don't want to break anything so I will wait for response. I am sure it must be staightforward, but I did not see any fasteners, etc. to allow removal.
Thanks for the help.
