On my '01 there was 1 clip at the very back and 2 in the front. You have to kinda push up and pull back on it to get it to pop loose. It was a PITA, because you can't see anything until you get it off. Not sure if your's is made the same or not. Mine doesn't have the thermometer, its just the sunglass holder, lights, and then the garage door opener. The lights have a quick connect connector on them Thumbs Up!

There is no easy way. Just take out the two screws and pull down on the console easy and it should pop down. That is all I have ever done with no problems.

No screws on mine, just clips.
I don't have the Information Center, so I'm not sure if the ones that have it are the same. They should be, cause is the same console but I'm not sure. Thumbs Up!

1) Load 3-1/2" shell with #8 shot in it into 12 gauge shotgun.

2) Place end of barrel of aforementioned shotgun to center console.

3) Pull trigger.

Thumbs Up!

Or were you wanting to be able to replace the center console after you fixed your problem? In that case, I think it's like everybody else mentioned...the one in my '97, from the best I recall, as two clips at the front and one large® one towards the rear, I believe. I think it slides back and then down, er something. I'm sure there's destructions online somewhere. I'm fairly positive the '98 and newer trucks are, basically, the same design.

From the FSM:

Quote:REMOVAL
(1) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative
cable.
(2) Open the garage door opener storage bin door
and locate the two overhead console latch tabs near
the front of the bin (Fig. 4).
(3) While pulling gently downward on the front of
the overhead console, push the latch tabs forward
until each latch is disengaged from its receptacle in
the inner roof panel.
(4) Slide the overhead console rearward far enough
to disengage the two mounting hooks on the rear of
the housing from the mounting holes in the inner
roof panel (Fig. 5).
(5) Lower the overhead console from the headliner
far enough to access the wire harness connector.
(6) Disconnect the roof wire harness connector
from the overhead console wire harness connector.

I am With Stupid That is all I have done with my '95 & '98 and both of my dad's '04's. Just don't get too excited when you are pulling down on it.

94-98 you take the two screws out the front that you can see from the bottom, then you slide the whole unit backwards. 99+ you take the screws out if there are any, and i believe there is just one clip that you dislodge when you pull down on it.
