JUST AN UPDATE !
I found out how to take out the console after messing around and searching. I'll start simple, the cup holder. You may have to remove the top part and under there is a bolt.
You will be 10mm ratchet part for this, and probably an extender for the other bolts.
After you make that one lose go to the arm rest, open the lid and you need to remove the inside, I simply used a flat head and sort of perched it upward under I could use my fingers to pull out. Under there you'll see two bolts remove both. The last bolt is by the emergency brake, you'll need to pull up the brake to get to it and move the gray flap stuff around and under it closer to the lighter will be a little hidden bolt. It's pretty well hidden and best reached if your in the driver's seat. Remove this and the console is loose !
If you are replacing the lighter like me, don't go universal they won't work the screws aren't long enough find a replacement from a savaged car or the like/junkyard. Oh, and removing the top half for the lighter is a pain use a flat head to move around the seperate parts of the cup holder from the rest of the console, after that you can move the whole cup holder part up and close to you so you can see/replace.
Thought I would share in case anyone else needs the answer.<3
