That guide is good up to step 6.
7. Turn the antenna unit (says "Lock-Off-On-Start" 1/8" clockwise. That will release it. Pull it up. Push in the little clip that holds the connector to the antenna unit and set antenna unit aside.
8.Reach in the opening with your fingers and just pull up on the 4" long console panel the antenna was in. It will come right out.
9. Pull out the interior window switch if you have a convertible, release the clip holding the connector using a flat screwdriver, and set it aside.
10. Remove the screw that holds the front of the console to the shifter unit.
11. Pull up the boot around the shifter for manual cars. The plastic ring will unplug. The console will come out over the shifter, leaving the boot and shifter in place.
For automatic cars, I believe you can pull the shifter plate up and likewise remove the console over the shifter in step 14 here. I could be wrong.
12. Check the security antenna inside the rear of the console. On the NG900 they are usually just flopped in there. The 9-3 had the antenna clipped in originally.
13. Pull the emergency brake on hard.
14. Pull the console off from the rear, working it up between the seats, over the e-brake handle, and out.
If you're replacing the switch on a manual, remove the four bolts holding it to the chassis. Pull up and work your way underneath to the 13mm bolt that holds the shifter rod. Undo the bolt and pull it out. Pull the unit up, disconnect the ignition and turn over to remove the switch. Two torx screws hold the switch to the key unit.
On an automatic, see the WIS for another hour of fun getting in there.
