So you pop up the shifter surround to get to the three scews or do the three screws come out first before popping up the shifter surround?

Mine had the little box with the door where the usb port is attached to the shifter surround via 3 screws from underneath. It was pretty tricky to get everything apart the way the instructions describe. It was even trickier putting it back together.
Did you try removing it via the instructions on SXTH's website? I don't remember it being that difficult and all the cars should be the same.

Wow, didn't know they had the instructions on the SXTH website. Thanks!
Those are for the shifter bushings but it should still get you pretty far.

Yeah, that second step is the one that doesn't work. You can't just pull up on the edge of the shifter surround nearest the front of the car. 1. there's nothing to grab on to because 2. it's attached to the box behind it via screws from underneath.
