How to pull down the overhead console?

I'd like to put a Sirius Sportster5 in one of my overhead sunglass holders. Need to get power from the reading lights and run the antenna wire down the pillar. Don't see any screws inside. How do you lower the console?

I am doing the same idea except I will be putting a Garmin GPS in mine. The best information I have found so far and from the research I have done is you need to pull down the headliner and access it from the top, apparently it pulls up and out of the headliner not down.

Thanks, chickened out for now and mounted the sirius starmate on the center console infront of the forward cupholders, just a 6" run to the audio input.

I have a 2011 F250 XLT Premium interior. I was able to remove the upper console by just pulling it down. I do recommend that you pop out the light lens cover first. It just pops off (downward). Then, stick you fingers up into the light area to hold the top of the clamshell piece (an off white plastic that holds the console to the headliner) and pull down on the bottom half of the console. The bottom half just has metal clips that hold it to the top half. Don't pull down directly on the console without supporting the top part of the clamshell. Otherwise you will be pulling on the headliner itself and it is not that strong. I removed the console several times to install antennas in the roof. You can remove the top half of the clamshell as well if you need to get to the roof but you should remove the screws that hold the visor clips first so that you can get more flexibility in moving the headliner then remove the top clam shell piece. Good luck.
