Help.

So I had my phone's memory card on this area and it fell into where the gear changes and slid underneath the cup holder area. Is there any easy access to getting underneath to this area? I have important stuff I need on the card.

Or can I take it somewhere?

pull the four plastic circles out of the center console and then the bolts behind them and you should be able to move it around enough to get to it

How do you pull the four circles out? And are the bolts directly behind the cirlces? I do see two screws near the cup holders.

Okay so I got the four circles out and took out the bolts. The center thing only lifts up and the memory card is so small that I can not see it. Do the panels where the bolts are come off or is it just one big piece? I had thrown some change down there to see if things could fall down there and I managed to pick up some of the change by sticking my hand in there. I'm guessing the card fell deeper or is covered by change and I can't see it.

If I take it to a dealer, would they be able to take the center thing out?

And there isn't a possible way for the memory card to fall so deep that it would fall out from under the car?
Sorry I'm a girl and clueless about a car.

The whole center console is one piece. If you remove your shifter nob you should be able to pull it right up, assuming you disconnect the cig lighter power.

Mods: GT-R exhaust, CRABs O3 w/FPU, 35% tint, 5000K HID lows/fogs, upper/lower recessed grilles, Racingline strut bar, concept darts, white LEDs everywhere

Is the shifter nob hard to take out?

The chrome ring pulls/prys down and under that is a screw holding the nob on.

I actually tried this and it doesn't go up all the way to be able to see under the cup holder.

don't be afraid to yank it way up because if you wanna pull the shift collar off the knob its a pain in the ass and you will probably break it i did but luckily i liked it better without it
