Default need help for overhead console removal

Hello all,

I'm in the process of installing 2 small 2.5 inch camera on the overhead console of an ES350 2008, i manage to remove the 2 screws hidden behind the plastic tab covers, but now i can't pull the console out....

Before doing something harch, i need conselling. Should i pull in a special manner to safely remove the console out.

thank you in advance

I've helped people out with interior removal and recalled they ran a bluetooth mic to the overhead console.

I dug up the thread for you and they just happened to have a picture of the back of the console.

After searching and finding the back picture of the console, as yours, the procedure seems to be obvious, but it takes some guts, so i pull hard the 2 tabs off after removal of the 2 screws, it works.

thank you
