Default Removing Lower Center Console

A few weeks ago, I installed a set of booger bushings, now I'm hearing some sort of rattling somewhere inside the console when I go WOT between 3,500-5,500 RPM. It's the strangest thing.
I was able to remove the console piece (covers the shifter and E-brake) to install the bushings originally, but now I can't seem to get the console off again to find the rattle. I can get the screws out, but I'm having trouble finding a way to lift out the console, the armrests are blocking the path. If anyone has a good detailed way to get it out, or some good pictures showing the placement of the seats, it would be much appreciated.

Did'ya lean the seats all the way back?? Also you can remove the arm-rest itself. That helps a little bit, but the plastic pivot still makes it tight. [:I] Also try to lift the back of the console straight up while at the same time trying to pivot around the front edge. {Geez, even I don't even understand what I just said!!}

Good Luck

The seats have to be all the way back and the tops have to be leaned all the way and the E brake has to be all the way up as far as you can get it.I didn't have any trouble getting it out. Getting it back in I had to remove the little lever for the back support on the drivers seat.
