Ok, how do I remove outer piece of overhead console without breaking it?

I have a 2011 with the overhead console that just has the garage door thing, light and sunglass case. I want to remove it for painting. However it feels like I'm gonna break it into pieces when I start to even get a finger underneath it. Suggestions?

Aren't there screws holding it up there?

I thought the screws where for the main part not the outer trim. I could be wrong.

I just looked at mine (2011). Mine doesn't have a trim piece around that part. It's the main piece that comes down. Yes take all the screws out.

OK got it. It was only one screw actually. Interestingly, there is a wire bundle that goes to where the garage door opener compartment that isn't connected to anything. I wonder what else can go there...

I have the same thing. I'd rather have the garage button for storage than the temp gauge that you have to fix when it goes out.

I wonder if there is a combo sensor setup. Like temp, compass and info to go in that chamber

The potential things that can be up there wiring wise are Autodim mirror, home link mirror (which would have compass and temp integrated), or you could have one of those consoles that has the little LED screen with a temp read out.

All these things sorta vary on your year, what package you have etc. Towards the later years they started changing some of that pre-wiring so not sure about a 2011, but its stuff along those lines.
