How do I remove center console wood trim

Hi,

I need to remove the Centre Console wood trim on my 1997 740il E38 where the shifter and ash tray are etc, but I am not quite sure how to do it.

Does anyone have any ideas?

The reason I need to remove it is because the hazard light button has fallen out of its hole and has been pushed through the wood trim. I have tried various methods to try and retrieve it but I can't get anything to fit down where the button goes to pull it back out. So if I remove the wood trim it make make it a hell of a lot easier.

Thank you
