Armrest Lid replacement

The latch on my Armrest has snapped again for no reason. This is the second time with the first being replaced under warranty. Anyone know how to get the top lid off before i go prying on things? It looks like there are two trim pieces on the side that just pop off that would give me access to what i need?

Sorry I don't know how to remove it, but 2 lids breaking "for no reason" makes me think perhaps there is a reason?

Has the lid broken when you are closing it? If so, they're meant to break when you have too much stuff in the little compartments.
