Changing paddles while initially seeming hard is quite easy.
Here's how it's done

Use a flat bladed screwdriver to prise out plastic tab on either sidewheel. At this stage the ignition will need to be on to turn wheel.

Use a T20 Torx driver to undo bolt under each tab. WHEN FINISHED TURN OFF IGNITION

MAKE SURE IGNITION IS OFF

Remove centre boss (containing airbag) from wheel- pulls straight off. No need to unplug.
Then carefully prise one piece aluminium trim off the three spokes and circumference of centre of wheel.

Poke cable through wheel spoke and paddle comes straight off.
