pry it off from the front. use a screwdriver with the tip covered in electrical tape. its pressure fit.

the hardest piece to remove is the door handle. I suggest after removing the screw in the handle under the little hinged cover that you put a small flat screwdriver in just above the unlock switch, then pull the handle slightly. then insert a screwdriver below the handle directly below the unlock switch and it should come loose. its held in w/ two pressure clips in there and that's where they're located.

its difficult to pull the piece off w/o putting your screwdriver in there as i described above because the handle has a small piece holding it in under the front of it that cant be pulled off w/o sliding it back a bit.

Unzip the armrest cover and pull forward. You will the see the bolt that holds the armrest onto the seat.

You need to pop out the plastic cover over the nut in the armrest. Then use a 14 mm deep socket to remove the armrest. The job takes less than a minute.

Pop off the round plastic cover at the hinge of the arm rest. Use a socket wrench to remove the bolt. You're done.

Under the center console. Remove 2 screws under cup holders, 1 screw under 1/2 inch plug behind armrest, remove cover behind and underneath armrest (pry off) to get to 2 screws holding armrest on and remove it.
