To remove the handle you need to take out screw 12. Pull up on 10. Part 11 will also come out.

No need to remove the gear selector or the shift knob. Just peel the leather boot. You won't be able to remove the boot. Let it stay floating on the knob. Then you can replace the wood panel. Look at the new panel closely before you pull the old one off. If you do not pay attention, you may destroy the plastic clips.
