There is a U shaped pin in the front of the leather padded gear shifter..take a pair of needled nose pliers or small screw driver and remove that pin and then you are able to remove gear shifter. Then there are some screws beneath a small lid inside the center console. Remove those and you should be able to remove the console. Good Luck SEMPER FI
