I searched the forum and found out that to remove console wood you first remove ashtray holder and then pull console back and up. I got it loose at front easily and pulled back an inch or so (until it would not go further) but can't seem to get the back (where switches are) to release upward. The front goes up easily....but back seems connected somehow. I don't want to force it.
Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
