I tried to remov e the console to check out the short throw shifter today but couldnt get it out, i didnt see any screws, does it just pull out, or is there a trick to it

I it's anything like an a4 console there should be 2 screws when you open up the center console. Just take them out and maneuver the console around.

There are 2 10mm Screws that hold the front of the Console to the bottom of the Dash. They are located one on each side, below the Radio & Heater Controls.

There are also 2 Screws inside the Console's Compartment that need to be removed as well. I believe they're 10mm as well.

There are 2 screws under the coin holder in the console that you may have missed. Those hold the middle part of the console in.

Under the ashtray also

Removed my Console today and had forgotten about this one. Wanted to post up as a reminder to everyone, but got beaten to it. Thanks blue98Z. :thumb:

So as a recap: There are two inside the Armrest Compartment, one under the Ashtray, and one on either side of the Console, under the Dash, where the console meets the carpet. Thats a total of 5 10mm bolts holding it in place.
