Default How do you remove the center console in a 95 Ford Ranger XLT?

I have a 95 Ford Ranger and the center console broke. I want to remove it but I cant see any screws that hold it on the driver seat. It is a stock center console and the lid open toward the passenger. Does anybody know how to remove the center console? Any help would be nice.

i had no idea how to get mine out, so i literally used a metal saw and cut it out. After i realized that there were small allen screws holding it in. I liked my method better, haha.

Inside there is a plastice cap on the side, right about where it pivots. If you get in there with a light you will see it. take a screwdriver and pop it off. Under it is a torx head bolt. Lefty loosey and WALAH!

If you lay the driver seat and passenger seat back as far as they go.

There is a plastic deal that covers the hinge. pull that back out of the way

There is a torx screw that hold it on one on each side

I have the same model ranger with the same problem, don't wanna saw it off, just want to remove it and put it back on later. I know exactly what your talking about with the torx screw, and I have unscrewed it once before, but to no avail the console didn't come off. Someone should make a how to video for us idiots who can't figure it out

I was going to say, Get a buddy with Ranger, hook up a heavy duty chain around the console, hook up the other end to your buddy's trailer hitch and PULL!
