If I remember correctly, you have to take off the shifter. There is a small staple-like pin on the shifter that you have to remove in order to pop the pin off. I believe there are two screws in the bottom of the storage compartment that need to be taken out and also two screws at the top. You have to remove the coin tray rubber at the top to get to the screws.

They are all hex screws, I THINK 10mm.
