Its a reasonably common thing to happen on BA autos, although neither of mine have had it. Ford will do it under warranty next time it's in for a service if it's still under new car warranty.

why do you need to remove the handbrake to take a shifter surround off?

as on the ba autos to remove the surround you have to remove the centre consol and to remove that centre console the handbrake has to be removed and hung off to the side as it bolts to it. it may look easy but the bloody surround is under the dam centre console so thats the reason why the handbrake has to be removed
