How to remove center console?

I want to install a GPS in my SC but to put it where I want it, I have to remove the center console. How can I do this?

If you take every thing out of the console, then look in the rear of it, there is a rubber liner. If you lift up the liner, you'll see two screws that you can unscrew. In fact, lift up all the rubber liners if others are there and ensure no other screws or bolts are holding it down. Once done, set the e-brake and then it should be a matter of just lifting it up from the rear to disengage it from the subcover.

I took all the screws out already I just can't figure out how to pull it out from the dash. I don't want to force to hard and brake something.

I know when I installed my console I basically pulle it up from the rear and as I did, this brought it up and over the ebrake and I then gently pulled it back and out from the subcover. I had installed it but once in place I realized my wiring harness or something wasn't quite right so I had to bring it back out. Easy and steady as it goes.
