This step is quite simple after you have removed all the wires. In this step, you need to loosen and remove all six screws that hold the console and treadmill. The treadmill has two screws on the left, two screws on the right and two in the middle. Make sure that you use a Philips head screwdriver to remove all of the sic screws. As soon as you get done with it, carefully raise the console from the frame and keep it in a safe place.

Once you remove all of the bolts, you will only be left with the base which cannot be disassembled.
