    Sure. Been years ago but I believe there just a clip that pops off the bottom side and the whole thing comes out.

    If you use the realoem.com or bimimercat.com online part database websites...if the item number in the illustration has brackets that attach it to another item number...then all the item numbers that are included in the bracket comes with that item number.

    In this case for the m62 (up to 9/1998 build date)...the accoustic cover is #1 in the illustration and the "buttons" are #2. You can see that #2 is bracketed to #1...which means if you order the part nbr listed for #1...it will come with the buttons (#2). And #2 can be purchased separately since they are also listed below the illustration with their own 11 digit part nbr.
