How do you remove overhead console in a ford explorer?

Open the cover and locate the screws on each side of the console. Remove them with a Phillips screwdriver. The console will get a little loose. Do not pry it now or intend to remove it by pulling the loose end. Get the part of the console that is close to the windshield and try to get your fingers in between the ceiling and the base of the console. Pull the console down once you are able to grab the cover. Remove the connector. Installation is the opposite.
