How to remove the centre arm rest

One of our passengers decided to use the central armrest as a zimmer frame when clambering out of the rear of the 147 over the weekend. Snapped the padded lid right off.

It looks like this arm rest (storage box) just snaps into a rectangular area at the rear of the centre console. Is it possible to remove this part in isolation? I couldn't find any likely looking fixings.

If I can get it out I can look into either repairing or replacing it but at least the interior won't look a dogs dinner in the meantime.

Found it.
The panel to the front of the console pops off to reveal a single allen screw holding the arm rest in place.

I'm having trouble here - how does it pop off?
The little panel at the front yeah?
either side it has fixings to the left and right behind them so my one simply doesn't 'pop' off unfortunately!

I have the 3 door too 2001.

The arm rest/ storage box is long and thin it must be the same style and shape surely?

There is a rubber hinge cover for the lid inside the armrest itself, just pops out and gives access to the bolts that hold it in place.
