Anyone know how to remove the silvery-cloloured plastic cover around the gear shift box on an 07 automatic? The part I'm talking about is in this pic (http://images.thecarconnection.com/med/2007-mazda-mazda3-5dr-hb-auto-s-grand-touring-gear-shift_100276395_m.jpg)

I need to remove the cover so I can get to the letters/ numbers that indiate the gears. Apparently I popped those off last weeknend when I was cleanig the interior and they fell down inside the gear box. I can see them, but I need to pop the cover off to get at them.

Screw off the shift knob, pull out the ashtray, pop off the cup holder surround, and with a flat head screwdriver carefully remove the clips that hold it on. It's pretty easy
