Replacing iDriver Controller and surrounding trim

The iDrive Controller in my 1M is starting to look very worn so I've purchased a new one online, as well as the piece of plastic trim that surrounds the controller.

Can anyone give me basic tips/instructions on how to remove the surrounding plastic trim and the controller without doing any damage?

Thanks!!

Get a decent set of trim removal tools. I-drive controller should just pop out. There are 4 clips that hold it in place. Base trim should come out by using a thin trim tool to pry up the trim.

Thanks!

Yup, in the end I was worrying about nothing. With a bit of care the trim around the iDrive Controller just pops off. Easy.
