I'm probably unable to search for how-to videos because I'm not labeling them right, but basically I'm trying to replace the two plates in the center console on an egear '14 Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder -- one plate has the sport / auto / corsa buttons and the other plate has the soft top functionality / rear window. They are scratched up.

Pics attached. Anyone know how to pry them open safely or any videos showing the process? Also, the allen key that fits the sport/auto/corsa buttons plate just spins endlessly whether to loosen or tigthen, so not sure about that.

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

There are two clips located at the rear of the that center console panel, near the switches for the soft top. Use a plastic pry tool and pry up the sides near that end. Look on eBay for a used one and you can probably find pictures of the back side of that panel showing you exactly where those clips are. They are pretty tight so it is kind of a pain.

The e-gear plate and buttons are held in place by the allen screws you see from the front, but they thread into nuts on the back side so if you simply try to unscrew the allen screws from the front side the nuts and everything just spins. You need to get to the back side to get a pair of pliers or a socket on the nuts. Everything is very obvious and simply once you pop that center panel off. Good luck.

Thanks, appreciate the help. Easy enough with a pry tool.

Big difference having refreshed plates in place.
