Default Installing center console

I've got a 2008 automatic PT Cruiser I am trying to put the center console back in but I can't get it over the emergency brake. Does anyone have any ideas please?

Did you recline the seats all the way back? Also, pull the brake all the way back as far as you can get it. Will be even easier if you take passenger seat out.

Yes I've got the seats all the way back I get the console over the shifter but when I try to line up the emergency brake doesn't come up far enough to go through the hole

Try to pull the brake up 1 or 2 more clicks if you can.
Make sure that you plug in the front power socket first, you won't be able to see it once the console is back in. Once you get everything lined up & have the brake almost in...shift the car into neutral...push the console as far as you can towards the front of the will give/bend a little...just enough for you to push it past the curved plastic at the front of the brake slot.

It's possible to lock out the automatic adjuster and get the parking brake handle to the full up position. The console slides right in then.

Here's a short video I shot on the process (sorry about the poor quality of the video, but it should give you the idea):
