I was wondering if anyone had any info on how to disassemble the center console on a 2015 tradesman single cab, with the 2/3 seats. I need to fix a short in the aux port, so either how to pop that out, or the entire plastic housing would be appreciated. Attached picture of the type I'm working with, since all info I can find is for the car style console.

Been 10 years or better since i had a truck with that flip up center,but if i remember right,i think if you lift the matt up in the bottom of the center hole,there'll be a couple screws under it.

@Mpgrimm2 of M2Mods made some great how to videos on exactly this...my Aux port does the same thing (I just disconnected it at the back of the radio and use the signal for something else).

Thanks everyone, especially SitKneelBend for the videos. Now I just need a day off lol, not quite as simple as I hoped. I personally have a Bluetooth receiver plugged into my aux port, and want to keep as much of the factory stereo in tact as possible.
