HelloCustomer

the procedure is to remove the ashtray, there should be two screws, remove those, using a suitable plastic wedge or any other non-scratching utensil(spatula) gently pry up on the plastic cover around the shifter and set of to the side, if you need more room, you should be able to disconnect. inside the center console there is a carpet at the bottom, remvoe the carpet and there is two screw that hold down console. if you need more info please let me know.
