I'm not entirely sure, but I think you have to remove the entire center console and there should be either a bold/screw or some kind of clips holding the cover on the e-brake. I think there are some downloadable FSM's on the s14 page, if you're not sure how to get it off (although i can tell u from experience that it'll be alot easier if your car is stick and not auto). Why are you trying to take it off anyways? Do you have a new one to put on? Because if so, then you wont need the old one, obviously. Although i understand your reluctance to cut it off if you dont have to. Good luck, though!
