97 850 power window control panel

Well no matter how many times I warned her, my wife continued to spill
coffee on the control panel located just under the cup holders.
Guess what? The windows do not work quite right any more. Surprise!! I
had the sales man and owner of the place where we bought the car tell my
wife the replacement part would cost ~$500 when we bought the car...sigh.
Anyway before I spend that money I would like to pull the panel off and see
if I can clean it.

I looked at the unit and can not figure out how to pull it off--I tried to
gently pry it up, however it did not seem to want to come out.

Do I need to remove the entire console? How does it come apart?

Thanks!

Lift up the arm rest console, remove the access panel in the front of
the storage box. Remove the two T25 screws. Lift up the hand brake lever
all the way. Remove the plastic trim piece below the handle. Remove the
lighter. Remove the two T25 screws in the front of the switch panel.
Raise the switch panel and pull back slightly. Remove the two T15 screws
holding the front of the console. Slide back and up from the rear and
remove the entire console as a unit. Take to work bench perform magic.
Reinstall.
