How do I remove the center console? I need to replace my neutral safety switch so I can replace it tomorrow. But I cant figure out how to get the center console out. I also got my new trunk release switch so I can open my trunk again! Now I can install my SLP spoiler while im at it!!

I don't know if it's the same as your model, but I just had 4 bolts, 2 on each side on the floor near the front and rear of the front seats. I removed those 4 and then pulled to the rear. There may have been some screws in the center console as well. Also, there was a set screw on the gear shift. Remove it to pull off the top of the gear shift so that you can lift the console off the shifter.

To be sure, check the GM manual at the top of the page. That's where I found the instructions to remove mine.

Here's a good writeup with pictures on how to remove the center console:
http://www.pfyc.com/supportfiles/shifterinstall.html

After you pry up the upper part, the lower part (may need to be removed if you need to get the shifter out) is bolted in (4 10mm bolts IIRC), but the bolts are easy to see and obvious once you get the upper part off.
