The armrest is held in place with two pins through the plastic hinge.
Push the pins out with a big paper clip or similar.
Be mindful of the small spring on the front hinge.
Happy Boxstering,
Pedro

On my 2001 "S" The small spring is located off the back of the back hinge but it may be different for different years?

yes mine is also. but it looks like i just have to push out the two metal rods out. they are really tight so it ll take more effort than i anticipated it.

i wanted to take it off to paint it with a brushed-aluminum look.
