Assuming both consoles are open on the bottom and the hose routing will remain the same:

Remove steering wheel.

Unscrew/bolt the helm mounting plate/bracket.

Drop helm down from console to deck.

Remove and replace console, reverse process to reinstall helm.

Caveat: that would work on mine. Suppose it depends on your exact setup.

If you do have to pull hoses, you'll need to bleed the system - not a big deal, but a bit of a pain and potentially messy.
