The smaller bracket that you need to bend, can it just be cut?

Clean your carpets while its out.

Have an impact handy for seat bolts.

Don't rush it, also make sure your seats don't have a memory unit or you just wasted money.

The seatbelts you really don't have to take out. But if you do take them out put them back in BEFORE you put the console In
