2017 Advance = how to remove the 2nd row center console?

Hi all,
first post here, but have had our 2017 Advance since Sept. We have our 3rd child on the way soon, and for reasons not really important for my question, I would like to remove the 2nd row center console.

I know that I'll have to deal with exposed USB cables and probably unfinished carpeting, etc. once removed. But I'd like this area to be an "aisle" to the 3rd row for my 4 year old. The whole "scoot the 2nd row seat forward and release the handle to have her enter" is not an answer I am seeking. I am looking to see if a.) anyone else has removed it, and/or b.) has access to some type of service manual on where it it bolted down and how to get to them to unbolt.

I appreciate the help. Thanks in advance! (pun intended)

because the 14's-16's didnt have the center console. it might be a challenge for someone to provide you with that information up front.

my suggestion would be for you to pony up the $10 and review (even download all of the vehicle components if you can) the manual(s).
We’re in the same boat with our ‘19 Advance. Please share what you come up with as I’m very curious myself.
Likely you will need to first remove the seats. Screws probably through the sides, possibly a couple also down through the top. BTW you should be able to find a diagram online of the parts breakdown which should show you what your looking for.
I'm not a fan of the dual seats either in my 17. Makes it very dog unfriendly. Only way to get the bench in my case was to pop the $2k for the rear seat entertainment system, which I was not gonna do. The dog doesn't like movies anyway...
@op did you ever find a solution?
