OK...actually 48 hours went by and happy to say that I was able to get the ductwork back together WITHOUT resorting to removing the console.  Have broken off one plastic tab on the ductwork actually made it easier to re-install, as I only had to push down on the slot on the upper part of the pre-existing ductwork to slide the tab into place and then push up on everything to seat the clip.  Took about six minutes of laboriously working my hands around a very tight spot, but it can be done.  I recommend putting the seatback all the way down, get an old pillow for your head or take 3 ibuprofen from the back-neck strain you're gonna be feeling later.  Once you get the piece of ductwork back into place, you can then install the other piece of ductwork that's about a foot long and one side has that corrugated rectangular shape and that's a breeze compared to the other.

In fact, avoid taking the console apart at all costs, as I sure as heck broke the plastic tabs that hold the ashtray in, so that another junkyard piece I'll need to get...down the road.

Looks like the weekend will be made for a intake manifold gasket replacement on the firewall side.  Always something.

Thanks for the info. I had a similar problem a month or so ago with my AC. My AC also needed to be charged. Weird how it will still blow cold on the passenger side and not the drivers with a low charge.

I had taken out the center console this winter to fix the cracked wood around the shifter and I also encountered the same broken clips on the ash tray. It's a bad design as the plastic isn't thick enough to be pulled on. It also doesn't help that my car is almost 20 years old. I just put some hot glue on the back of the pieces to keep it from rattling, so I didn't need to buy another one. I don't use the ash tray anyway. I also had to fix a couple of cracked plastic pieces in the center console with some epoxy, fiberglass tape and some nails for added strength.
