    Default center console ?

    does it have to come out to change the auto shifter ? Look like it does but want to be sure before I do.

    YES, it does. By now I'm sure you have it done though. If not, don't worry. It comes out easy.

    Default Save a little time and work

    Possible to lift console over auto shifter handle with wires connected?
    Can do that with a manual shift.
    There is plenty of room to work in the shifter area without totally removing console.
    Leave tough to access and separate clock/g display connections connected.
    With a manual shift, remove trim, fasteners, and shifter stick.
    Place towel on drivers seat.
    Lift and move console over hand brake and shifter tower sideways, under steering wheel, onto drivers seat.
    Using D seat allows more access to work area.
