    The 5 gear one is totally different from the 6 gear one it doesn't split at the ball so i had to strip the full center section out take the arm rest and that out first then the big bit around the gear stick.

    but if you have the one that splits at the ball your laughing cos you wont have to change the full thing just split it at the ball unclip the cables and swap over.
