Default Center Console Questions

ok... I need to figure out how to get the black vent duct out of one console and into another. The part that holds the rear vents on has broke off mine. And looking at it, I need to get that whole piece out. I looked at it and located 2 screws on the bottom, which I can get, but it looks like the other 2 screws I need are inside the console and hold the latch and compartment piece on. But I can' figure out how to get those two off.

Here is the good one. I broke the left black piece off

Here is a bad picture of the 2 screws I can't get to. They are on either sides on the cig lighter and point back towards it.

Here is a picture of the bottom with the screws I can get

hopefully I can get this replaced this weekend. if not, I'l have 2 center console' in the lumina on the way back to rochester so i can look at them there. Thanks for the help.

And my dog is dreaming. She'* barking in her sleep.

you have to loosen the inner black vent extender and slid it down and towards the front of the car. The bracket that holds the door hinge is actually 2 bolts that points back and down on both sides of the cig lighter. You remove 2 nuts and the lid spring ***. comes right off.

Sonoma has it right but it'* acouple additional steps to completely remove the duct.

Bin lid removal
Remove center console from vehicle
Removing the two 7mm screws on either side of the rear cig plug behind access panel
Remove the two 7mm screws on the bottom of console assembly
Slide loosened duct downward to access the two 8mm nuts through upper rear vent area.
Remove bin lid

Continue for center console duct removal
Remove two phillips screws attaching bin trim bezel and remove bezel
Remove two retainers for the forward trim (ashtray, shifter, power seat trim) located under the latch release button.
Remove forward trim
Duct can now be removed from console.
