Mine is a rear console located between the two captains chairs in the second row seating. The console is a simple box with no electrical or air connections. I have located the 2 exterior side bolts at the rear of the console and now the rear of the console can be lifted a little. I am unable to locate screw or bolt to loosen the front of the console. Any advice on where the screw or bolts are located will help. Thanks
