lesse if i remember. up front, on each side, there is trim that kinda covers the very front, and is held on by black machine screws. once you remove them, there is a gold colored screw on each side that holds the metal part of the console to the dash frame. they are very hard to see, but they are there. these are the sumbitches. you need either a hand impact, or drill them out. dont even try a regular phillips, it will just strip them. then, you need to remove the radio, and the 4 gold screws holding it down. in the rear, there are 2 black screws, about 2 inches from the very rear of the console. you also need to remove the cover, just lift it up, and you will see 2 screws, and the cover itself is kinda tricky, the ends that go into the console kinda hook in. the black inside just lifts out, then you push the plastic guides for the seatbelts OUTWARDS, and snake the whole assemblies INWARDS as you lift out the console. after you have removed the inside of the console(the black container), reach in and pop off the black plastic part that holds the coin tray and the mirror switch, and disconnect the mirror switch. unscrew the shift knob, and reach in and pop off the boot, it is held on by little nubs on all 4 sides, they just pop off, then you can remove the boot. on the left side of the parking brake lever, there is a piece of trim that just pops off. you also will have to disconnect the shoulder belts one each side from the seat belt receptacle, and snake them thru into the console as you remove it. after everything is unbolted, you lift up the rear of the console, and pull it back, you may have to put the car in like 4th gear. not too bad, only a couple of good cuss words on this one.
