How do you remove the center console on a 2004 Trailblazer? A great pen fell behind... Thanks

The Haynes manual might give you some good insight. You might be able to pick one up at a nearby Autozone or similar auto parts store.

Your local library might also have a Hanes or Chilton manual for the vehicle.

As noted above, the Haynes or Chilton manuals will have the information, and your local public library probably has a copy on the shelf (or, these days, they might have access to the online databases).

If you're not the take-things-apart type, though, and if we're not talking about a Mont Blanc or something, you might be better off just buying a new pen. I've taken a lot of consoles and dashboards apart (some of my youth was misspent among car-stereo geeks), and it's pretty easy to break a tiny clip, or strip the threads on a tiny plastic screw, or to put things together not-quite right, and wind up with a mysterious rattle, or a dash that never quite fits together as well as it did before.

Keep this in mind. You don't know where the pen went. You might get the console off and still not see the pen. But you've already taken the console off so the temptation to start dissecting your car becomes greater.

I say this because in the late 90's my Palm stylus rolled somewhere under the dash (99 Jetta). I chased it the next weekend, and the parts on the lawn started to look really intimidating, and I had parts left over AND a rattle after I reassembled everything. I found the stylus, but I could have had a new one for a lot less than six hours work.
