Just figured this out last week. Open the lower cubbie and pull in a careful but forceful motion straight up focusing on the forward and outter sides. It's going to fight you tooth and nail but once you get the first two it won't be too bad after that.

Pull harder. It's going to be a bitch because it probably hasn't ever been removed. Just went out to my car to make sure again I was right. Pull right above the the seat heaters using your thumbs inside the grey part with your other 8 fingers pulling from inside the bottom cubbie. It will pop and then run your fingers down the sides toward the back.

I'd recommend starting at the other end. Pull the hand brake up and use the opening from there to put your fingers in and lift. Use a plastic pry tool if you have. They're all clips that are removable by pulling upwards, so you could start anywhere but I find it best to start where the plastic is weakest and less chance of snapping the piece if you put pressure at the rear. It also allows the most grip.

Also, the silver trim piece is glued on or something IIRC so if you remove it from the cup holder piece, you won't be able to fit it back on tight. There's holes and pins that line up, and it won't wobble or anything once you reinstall everything but just a heads up.
