To Remove Entire Shifter and Center Console?

Get a BIG sawzall, with a BIG blade. Make a deep transverse cut at the front of the console. Make a deep transverse cut at the rear of the console. Take a 12 pound sledge and gently strike the center portion of the console between the deep transverse cuts. When the gentle attempts do not work, steadily increase the strike pressures until the cut out portion gives up. The shifter will give up with the console, provided that the strike pressure is adequate for the intended purpose............Ken :beer:

Actually, look at your assembly manual. It will give you the location of all the securing bolts, etc., so that you may loosen the connection points.

Removing shifter

Looking at shifter rear side their is a small "u " shaped clip pull out with pliers. Then shifter T should lift off . Then by the console door area look for two { phillips head } screws . Remove them then the trim angles out watch for two molded in clips at front. Open console lid and deep inside there are bolts attaching console to tunnel. Once console removed should have acess to shfter. Bolted to the tunnel..
