    There are 2 screws holding the console to the front trim piece, and inside of the console, on the bottom, I think you'll find a single screw holding it to the center hump. It should be fairly easy to take the whole console out and wash everything up. You'll have to remove the shift knob too, if I recall. Been a few years since I took mine apart.

    Yes, you should be able to unscrew it by hand. I never liked those square cupholders either! You might be able to cut a piece of foam or something to make things a little more stable.
