Does anyone know how to remove the center console from a Monte Carlo? I've tried but I feel like I'm missing some attachment point on the underside. Is there something under the shifter assembly holding the console down?

here you go:

first pop out your ignition trim with a flat screwdriver or plastic panel tool.

second pop out your fuse access panel on the drivers side and theres a screw holding the dash panel on about 4 inches from the top of the dash, remove this ( oh and by the way all the screws are 7mm)

next open the glove box theres a screw here also and you can see the dash trim being held in place. remove

next lower the lower dash panel by the drivers pedals, theres two quick release tabs to do this

theres two more screws remove these, to remove this part of the dash below the steering , unplug your trunk release switch once you have this piece removed ( its also has pressure pins )

now the fun part,put your key in so you can move the shifter all the way back, now turn the ignition back, the key will only go so far. doing this helps the dash clear when removing it. i put the key only in the ignition.

now the fun , just kidding on the last one.

grab the lower part of the dash under the climate controls and pull gently, the dash has pressure pins so it will take a little bit to get it going.

once this starts coming of just work it around gently, it wont break believe me ive had mine off lots of times.

the part of the trim around the steering area you need to grab the top pursade it out around the steering.

the only thing plugged into this is the hazard button once you remove it this far.

hopefully this works, and dont be afraid its easier then you think.. just take your time

Thanks for that, but unfortunately that's getting the dash trim out. I can do that in my sleep. Laughing

I've got some sound deadening I want to apply to the floor pan and the only part of the interior I've never successfully removed in the center console between the seats. I've tried in the past and failed... miserably.

He asked about removing the console, not the dash bezel

There are 4 screws that hold the console down... 2 in the bottom of the storage compartment and 2 just in front of the shifter assembly

just in case you dident know to access the to screws at the shifter, there is a little screw at the end of the console in that little cubby hole,its coverd by that little mini mat,then you can pop off the top half.plus you have to take off the shifter knob thats held by a plastic clip

I knew about the screw in the cubby, but I haven't been able to lift that top panel off the center console to get access to the bottom two screws.

Just curious, what are you doing that you need to remove the center console? Something broke?
