Our first step was to remove the transmission shift lever T-handle. We simply pulled straight up. There is no setscrew holding it on to the lever, but it’s a tight fit. We couldn’t get the right angle for sufficient leverage, so had to use a very large open-end wrench and a small hammer to tap it up and off. We also recommend removing the front seats to aid in OEM console removal (we also removed both doors to ease removing the seats). Each seat has four bolts.
