This is a much harder piece to fit than the handbrake sleeve. There's a couple of screws that need to be taken out and to reach them, the whole plastic central piece which houses the cup holders and elec window buttons has to be taken off. This is done by upclipping the rear plastic piece just below the rear central cubbyhole. A man at Mazda told me this piece nearly always breaks on removal and mine cracked. It's about £14+VAT for a new part and takes a week to be ordered.
If you want to do all this, the fitting of the leather sleeve is easy, the holes are in the right place and putting it back together is much easier than taking it apart.
