There are just 4 screws that hold it in. Is it an auto? If so there might be something holding in the shift mechanism. Also, how are you planning on painting it? I did mine when I first got the car. I used fiberglass resin and body filler to get it completely smooth before I painted it. Just an idea for better results.



Switch was for neons...lol. I was 18 lay off.

no it's a manual, and where are the other screws besides the front cupholders?

i know this is a bad pic but this is what i can't get off

Yea that looks like what you're stuck on. Have you tried a razor blade to pop that off?

That little thing is a B H to get out, lol. I left mine out, tore the thing up with a knife taking it out.

There are two screws under the cup holders, that one in the back, then above that one, you have to pop the plastic cover off, and also take out the screws holding the arm rest on (I think, not positive you have to do this step, it made it easier for what I was doing)
