You take those off, squeeze the two arms in to get them over the posts and you are free. might need to replace the metal clips though if you break them.
Actually, I have my console downstairs and I think it might still be apart. I'll get a picture. I had to replace the mount for the rear vent, which is actually one piece with the inside of the glove box.


RIGHT WAY

Ok, after looking at mine, it is a little more complicated. You need to remove the console compartment lid and surround piece. To do that, you remove the two screws from the lower portion, near the latch, on the part going around the opening. Next, you remove the lid hinge, which are two 5-7mm nuts, at a bad angle in the back of the console compartment, after you remove the little panel that hides it (pulls out and is near the top) I think they are 5mm, but not sure. Once both of those are out, you can remove the hinge, with lid, and the lower surround portion. With that removed, you look up under where the latch was and you should see the posts I referenced above. THe same procedure from that point on it used. I have pictures of the location, just got to find the card reader.

work them from each side with a small screw driver, or if you have two, try using two. They don't really break that easy, so they'll just need to be pushed back together.

it is fairly easy. going to be finishing mine up somethime this week.

The best tip I can give you for your shift boot replacement is put the console back in teh car..and pull the old boot off. It takes a little muscle...but it'll come out in one piece if you work it right.

I am taking this piece off and keeping it, and I'm going to grab another from the JY and just replace the boot on that one, incase I ever feel the need to go back to stock.

This is ridiculous. I switch boots all the time in both cars. Never had any problems, and never took that console apart.

I don't HAVE to say it'* ridiculous, but I CAN.

I've swapped shifter boots more times than anyone on this Forum. That kinda makes me the most 'experienced' at it. I've made several custom boots for various shifters before I settled on a favorite handle, and I still have two more boots to make.

The boot itself doesn't even need to be attached to the console. We're offering you much better and simpler alternatives to a problem that isn't even a problem.

I don't want to attach it to the console. I want to take the piece out and replace it with one from the JY so I don't have to pull the boot off my stock piece and screw it up incase I ever want to go back to the stock boot, then I will just change the piece out.
