You mean the gear selector panel thing? Just pops out. You'll have to move the stick forward, pop out the back, then move the stick back, pop out the front. And go get the economy thing out, it should just pop out, not hard at all.

Because just like me he thinks what you are planning is going to look tacky. Type of thing some commowhore owner would do.

But please yourself it's your ride.
