Fairly hard, but you have to work it up all the way around. Start at the shift knob opening after you have pulled the boot free. There are 8 friction fit prongs in pairs: 1) either side of the ashtray; 2) either side of the shifter; 3) behind the shifter; and, 4) at the very rear. Lift the armrest to be able to lift the rear free.
