Thanks, I will have to try that in the morning!!

jherrin215 The subs not much, I wouldn't waste the space to have it if it didn't come in the jeep when I bought it. How do you take the shifter boot off?? I figured that was how to get to the other bolt but I didn't just want to rip it off. If I could figure out how to get it off without tearing it up then I would have it whipped!! Thanks!!

Monjo Where is the sub located? I want one

amy jherrin215, no need to feel stupid, it was a question I needed to ask when I get time to work on my jeep.
Here's another question, Jerry and Upinar, how do you get the boot loose?

Yeah I looked for any screws on the outside and couldn't find anything, It feels like it is held on the inside by the shifter by something, but I don't know what. the majority of the front part is loose and it will turn some side to side, but not pull up. Thanks anyway!!

However, you can pull the shifter boot from around the plate it secures to without removing the console and see down into the shifter area to see where it is impacting.

Removing Center Console to Fix Shifting Problems

Asking this just makes me feel stupid, but can someone tell me how to remove the center console from my Jeep?? It's a 5 speed 03 sahara with a "sub" in the center console. I need to remove it so I can find out what's keeping the shifter from going into gears properly. I have had several recommendations on what to check but I have to figure out how to get the console out to check them. I took the 2 screws in the storage space out, and the bolt under the double cupholder, but it still feels like something else is holding it down and I don't wanna break anything. Thanks!!
