Ford Focus ZX3 Disassembling the base shifter tower ('base shifter plate')

Hello.

My base shifter plate has cracked, and is completely severed in x3 locations. I have successfully disassembled it from the vehicle.
What I'd like to know is: How do you disassemble the actual rod, and springs from the tower? And how would you install it to a new tower?

Thanks! I haven't a clue. There doesn't appear to be any screws.
Although there is some plastic piece over a ball and socket joint (on the right side).. There's no way to access it.
