Center Console/armrest Cover Replacement

Photos might help us know how far you have gotten -- I don't understand what you mean by the "rear vent hose".

If you are trying to remove the entire flip-up armrest, have you removed the little plastic vent grill that you see under the armrest after you flip it open? I'm not sure if doing that is enough to give you access to the other screws/bolts tht might be holding the armrest in.

If that isn't enough, remove the console box insert to see if that gives you enough access. There are a couple of screws hidden under the removable pad on the bottom of the insert. After removing the screws, the black plastic console box can be pried out with a trim removal tool, flat blade screw driver or -- my favorite "tool" -- a stiff blade putty knive with the blade wrapped with electrical tape so that you don't scratch anything. Be gentle but firm so you don't break the plastic box.

I took the console of the 90 LS I had apart quite a few times but my memory of exactly how I did it has faded.
