    Yes remove centre armrest, tray, ash tray and lighter. Find the hidden screws under the pen tray mat and remove the NIT/moulding. There are acres front and back I recal. Two or mor cable block connectors too.

    The handbrake lever is very easy to remove, just two or three bolts but the pi$$er is the handbrake cable rod end. This is retained by a tiny split pin over a washer, easy enough to remove but the rod then pings out and shoots back almost out of the tunnel!!! I suggest getting a loop of wire into the bend before releasing it so you can control its recoil! You will need to use a piece anyway to pull it back enough to relocate it in the new one.

    Well what i’ll do is strip down the surroundings and the new one on the seat so they can then take over from there, they’ll need to adjust it anyway as it’s needs to be pulled so high. I’ll put it back together when I get it home, is there a thread on how to remove the NIT etc? MOT rebooked for Tuesday to allow time for part to come.

    There is, I'm travelling now so don't have time to dig it out, it is fairly intuitive though on the 4200, if it doesn't lift easily there are still hidden fixings!

    I found it! It was on an old thread about removing the NIT unit, I’ve stripped the console down now so the handbrake is accessible with ease, i’ll let the garage do the rest on Tuesday, New lever and components should be here tomorrow.
