    I'm replacing the USB ports on my 2013 Model S because one of my ports is broken. I have a new unit (see photo) and I want to make sure that I don't mess up anything in taking apart the console to replace the USB unit. Does anyone know the best and safest way to take it apart? I looked endlessly for videos to no avail and can't seem to locate any documentation. Any help would be appreciated.

    Could really use some help here, guys. Surely someone has had to take this thing apart before, right? Grateful for any instruction ...

    PWlakewood, thanks for posting that! It's not quite the piece that I need removed, but it does get me a little closer. Thanks for responding to my pathetic pleas!

    Actually, I need to get into the USB area, which is right underneath the arrmest. It really has nothing to do with the center console, in my case. In fact, I don't even have a center console. See photo below.
