Yes, I followed your notes extensively. Thanks for the inspiration.



Getting that blasted piece out was not pleasant. I took half the interior apart trying to free it up. A lot of guides suggesting you should reach up behind the knee-pad trim piece and pop it out from behind, but there is zero chance of my hand fitting up there. Ultimately I shoved a trim removal tool under the cubby on the bottom right corner, while pushing down on the center console trim. That popped one clip loose and I was able to work my way along the bottom edge until the whole thing came out.

Haha the easiest way I found was not to pop the trim piece itself out from behind, but to remove the little trim piece under the kneepad, reach up under the kneepad and pop out the USB/AUX module. That part sticks further back and is easier to reach, and much easier to push out. It pops forward, so then you pull it out the front, and can reach into the resulting hole with your finger and get a good grasp on that trim piece and yank it out
