Remove the shifter knob. There is a staple in the front side of the knob. Carefully, with a pair of pliers and a little screwdriver, pry it out and pull it out. The knob comes off. you'll probably have to remove the hand brake handle. Pull it up, and take out the screw on the driver's side of the handle. It should slide off.
Next, you have to remove the shift indicator/ash tray plate. Remove all screws w/ hex screwdriver and take it off. There is a light attached to it. Just turn counterclockwise to unlock and it should come out. Next, there are two screws inside the center console. Remove those. I "think" there are a couple of screws above the climate control area you have to remove too. One in each corner. Then the top of the console should come off. Becareful, this is plastic and you have to maneuver it to get it off. When you get it high enough, remove the power windows, rear hatch release buttons (if equipped). You may be able to remove these switches after removing the shift indicator/ashtray plate.
If you want to remove the lower part, the things are to remove the two bolts towards the rear, the one in the middle bolting the two metal pieces together and then two screws, one on each side, mounting to the underside of the dash. Remove the radio/climate control and then it should come out.
