But our whole console area comes apart with like 2 screws. I think you can figure that out, just start pulling crap off, you'll find it easy.
there's NO screws when pulling the cupholder panel piece out.
just two pieces to pull.. lower waterfall/shifter part..
and the cupholder part with the small storage compartment with the stuck lid.
just pull the lower waterfall piece up and backwards. that's really the most "difficult" part... it takes me literally less than 10 seconds to yank both of those pieces out.. with maybe an extra second if i wanted to get the upper waterfall piece out.
there's the cigarette lighter cable you can disconnect or not, but you can just move the panel piece out of the way for you to get to the cupholder. pull up on the parking brake so you can slide it up and out easier.
there's really nothing special or tricky. just yank the damn thing apart.
