Pop that sucker open - there's nothing in there you cannot handle. Just remove the two screws at the back, by the center console, then pop the whole thing apart. There is a pair of screws, one on each side of the shifter, which you need to unscrew to get the knob off.

But, once you have the console cover off you can see everything, including the solenoid and wire you would need to cross/cut (I'm not sure which.) It took me all of ten minutes to get in there, being careful and not knowing what I was doing, the first time I tried. Now I can get in there in less than 5 minutes - EASY.

Let me know if you have any more questions.... I might be able to get my RS from the wife and investigate/photograph things.
