Its been a while, but I believe you will need to remove the center console - just the part under your elbow. There are nuts in the back and screws in the front (inside the storage box, under the liner, and under the shifter surround, respectively). Be extra careful - patience and caution will prevent the fragile plastic from breaking. If things break, save the pieces and epoxy them back together before reassembly.
