Change gearshift trim and wheel bottom trim

Hi!

New user from Sweden.. I have bought some upgrades for my X5.. I want to remove
the poplar trim from my sport steering wheel and also put a silver/alu trim on my shiftgear "joystick" instead of the wood/poplar colour.

I have ordred a new trim (M-sport, black bottom trim) from ebay, and also a new trim for
the shifter in silver/alu. But, a big problem, how do I remove and replace the both?

Do i need to remove the complete wheel? Can someone explain, or link me som kind of guide for the change for the both?

I have searched some on the forum, but havent found any guide..

Best Regards
Niklas
