Question 2004 Vue Center console removal to access E-Brake

I googled like crazy the last two days and found zero videos or chats on the removal of the center floor console to get to the E-Brake shifter assembly. I have zero resistance when pulling up the handle. Both rear tires have the cables attached. So I need to see if the attachment at the handle is loose or broken, won't pass NYS inspection without the E-Brake working.
I see 4 screws around the top portion on the console but do not see anything for bottom portion.
Any videos or guides on how to do this for the 2004 Vue?

Wrench Re: 2004 Vue Center console removal to access E-Brake

I solved my problem. I first unscrewed the storage bin and disconnected the power connector. This technically was a waste of time as I forgot about the pull out cup holder which blocks my view of anything below it. I found the 4 bolts along the bottom edge and removed them. 2 had rounded off heads so I didn't reinstall them, I'll get new as they are the front ones that I have to go under the seats. Yes removing the front seats would have made it easier to work on, it was just another headache I didn't want to deal with.
Once the floor console was removed, I found the clip came off the cables. Reinstalled and tested and the brakes hold so I'm good to go to get my inspection done.
