Gt3 gear shift surround removal.


Recommended Posts

The body coloured gear shift surround on my GT3 has some light scratches so I want to remove it to machine polish it. There are two screws at the bottom each side of transmission tunnel but what else secures it? I assumed it was the Allen bolts around the gaitor but it seems not and I can't find anything in the service notes.

I don't know because I cant see it in the parts manual. Obviously it's a specific part for the GT3 and doesnt appear to be mentioned at all. I think it may just be a case of undoing things until it moves 😂.

To answer my own question, the moulding is removed by undoing the two screws at each side of the transmission tunnel and also a further two screws that connect the moulding to HVAC control panel. These are accessed by removing the window switches and peering in the holes toward the heater / fan panel. There are two screws right up toward the top of the moulding, a bit tricky to get to but not too bad. Pic for reference:
