Welcome to JA.
To be completely honest that thing is a pain in the you know what. You can do it but everytime I have ever done one it takes at least an hour and never gets any easier. It hard to line the rod up that runs through the console lid. The clips on the outside when you take the bolts out on the lid break easily. Taking it apart isnt as bad as putting it back together. This is my opinion on it but I dont think you will damage anything further if you are easy with it.
