Default Removing cente console

Hoping someone with experience can give me a quick pointer here...

I want to remove the center console to do some wiring but I can get it out for some reason....

I was able to get the shifter surround wood piece off and remove the cup holders but I can't seem to get the rest of it out. I basically want to take this long piece out...

Click the image to open in full size.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the diagram but that's exactly how far I got on my own...I already have the armrest box out and cup holders.

However I can't seem to get the lower long piece out.

It may be held down by additional clips that I just need to pull on hard? If so which way do I need to pull to minimize the chance of breaking them?

You have to remove the trim around the ignition cylinder to get the front part of the console to release. I went through the same thing and cold not figure out what was holding it until I started to really look around.

I would need to double check at home but as far as I can remember the lower long piece that sits on the floor does not come anywhere near the cylinder.

Are you sure?

I had to remove the lower trim under the ignition since the console hooks into it.
