Sorry smitty,

do a search on this web site for it. I believe the question was asked before and the answer was to pull out on the ends of the waterfall by the seats (where the seat belts are) until it snaps up. Then the waterfall comes up and out from the area by the console. You should then have access to the console by the shifter I would think.

console removal

To remove the console you will have to follow the procedure below:

1. Lift up with pressure on the ends of the waterfall area behind the seats near the seat belts. This is merely held on by pressure clips.

2. Lfit the remaining portion of the waterfall useing the same type of pressure. Same type of pressure clips.

3. Tilt seat forward to expose a screw near top edge of lower console (one on each side). Remove screw(s)

4. Lift door for center console and remove one srew in side at passenger side rear corner.

5. Useing a T-15 torx bit remove the set screw from the **** lever (located on the front side of the shifter below the ball knob). Remove the lever.

6. Lift lightly upwards on the stainless control panel (also held in place with pressure clips). Then remove the electrical connector form the panel.

7. Remove a 7mm screw from under the control panel (located in the center of that area)

8. Use light pressure to lift up on the center console at the front edge, then center to release the pressure clips holding it in pace. With this removed you have access to all components located in the console.

9. TO REINSTALL REVERSE PROCEDURE.

#1 Remove the shift knob by loosening the screw at the bottom then remove shift bezel there is a 7mm screw under that. The shift bezel snaps in place pull kinda hard it WILL snap out.

#2 Open center console lid theres a 7mm screw in there as well.

#3 Remove the waterfall, pull up on the ends by the doors and it will also unsnap.

#4 remove the two (2) plilip screws one on each side.

Thats it. :)

That looks great.

It fits very nicely in the opening.

another dumb question

Since I have not done this, can I remove the shift bezel without removing or loosening the waterfall? That is, does the shift bezel just pull up after you remove the shift ball? I just want to get electric to my lighted FlameBall shifter knob from the electrics under the shift bezel.

Thanks

Yes, it will just pull up. But be careful, you can crack the lower part of the console.

I tried pulling up on the satin shinny finished shifter plate and I stopped because I thought I would break it. Is it held down that tight?

Yes, it is held down that tight. Once I pulled it up a little, I used a small screwdriver and flashlight to see where to release the clips underneath the shifter plate. There are 4 clips 2 on each side. Hope this helps.
