>>How do you remove the console cover???

I am wiring my exhaust cutouts and want to install the switch in the console cover, just ahead of the shifter. I have removed the shift gate bezel, and the two screws unders the rubber mat in front.
What next??

I can't find a thread on this...

Thanks all-

Thanks Joey!

I found that link on the LXforums right after I removed the console with the help of the instructions I received above.

This link should be posted here again!
