the center part of the console should pop out or you may have to unscrew it. the screws should just be philips or flat head

Just take a box to keep all the screws in & snap several pics along the way.

I removed every single screw from the console when I got mine. Mine was in 100 pieces when I got it home, but I finally figured out where everything went back together.

You'll only need a couple small sockets (I forget the size... maybe 5mm or 1/4") and a socket extension to get in the tight spots... maybe a phillips screwdriver too.

If it has the heater & stereo controls on the rear panel, you'll probably need a good set of wire cutters to cut the wiring out of the way.

Don't forget the 2 bolts holding the console to the dash right under the HVAC controls.
