OH MY GOD NATHAN! I didn't take it that far... i
pulled the sides of the console back enough to pull
the rubber vents. Yes it was a bitch to do, but I
wasn't up for as much dissassembly as you :)
I'm sure pulling that much out made it easy to do the
rubber vents, but I tend to torture myself and not
remove anymore than I have to :)
but, either way will work :)
the pictures of the box split in half is in exellent
idea, I did mine apart twice to get it right, a
picture of one half removed with the flaps still
attached is an excellent idea!
