Correct. I removed my console to paint it it does slide off EASILY
when you remove the console. Once it is off, you can go underneath there and unsnap it. It can be broken without much effort so careful.
I feel the best way to grab is is by taking out the center console. It is very easy to remove the console (three screws for me: one in each front cup holder and one in back). Pull the e-brake as far back as possible and I had to put my stick shift in neutral and unsnap the shifter boot. Feed the shifter boot through the hole as you pull it [the center console] up. Took about two minutes and that was just to unscrew the three screws.
Hope that helps. It's worth the trouble to remove the console, imo.
