Anyone got a way to do this easily? Otherwise it's down to Mr. BMW Dealer when I've done all (what I thought) the hard bits of my trim removal!

For some reason, I recall the handbrake to be one entire piece that has to be removed/replaced. Therefore, the wood trim part can't be pulled off. I could be wrong though.

Hi There

I know this one because mine as been loose for ages and I finally used a bit of superglue to reattach it last week. On each side of the wooden piece there's two tiny tiny little plastic lugs (2 of mine were broken off). If you had it off and were to fit it you would slip it over the button at the end and press down. The wooden piece would flex outward ever so slightly and as you kept pressing the lugs would go over their retaining ridge (the wooden piece would flex outwards slightly and then regain it's shape as it clicked home.) To get it off I'd use a little screwdriver prise one side away from the handbrake about 1.5mm and it'll pop off.
