You have to remove the center console completely, on the back side are the screws that hold the face plates and dog bones on

Thanks All
I replaced the faceplates (from wood to black) of the center console on my Z3. Also added aluminum shift and handbrake knobs.

Took about 2 hours. Not too difficult.
