By Paul Waterloo
Remove the Armrest Cover
Split the armrest cover plate with a trim stick or a screwdriver wrapped in electrical tape. From the back seat, just pop it in the split and pry it upwards. Move around front and pull it off the armrest, working the base gasket down.
From the rear seat, using a trim stick or screwdriver tapped with electrical tape, gently pry the trim cover apart. Then move to the front seat and completely remove it.
From the front seat, remove the entire trim cover. Be gentle with the trim gasket.
Unlatch Center Armrest Tray
