Agree with everything smooth baseman said. One added step is that if you have the 110v power plug, you need to pop out the black flashing around that and remove a screw underneath before the center top section comes out. The 110v accessory plug is screwed to a metal bracket that is screwed to a metal brace inside the dash. You have to remove it first. I did not know this but fortunately I didn't pull too hard. I saw where it was hung up and used a long extension on an 8mm socket to remove the bracket but after I saw the the back side of the cash I realized I did not need to remove the bracket but just pry the cover off and remove the screw.
Lockpick works great. There is a tremendous amount of room back there especially if you have the center shifter.
The silver piece around the shifter takes some coaxing. Start on one side and work your way around. Don't pull to hard such that it comes fully loose on one side. I can see that piece breaking easily.
