    2 screws and a bit of heave ho is all it takes.
    I'm like a bad penny, old, dirty, and appears when not wanted.

    Then read the How-To I did, I did it especially for people who had the same problem as you.

    To remove the ashtray without damaging it, remove the cigar lighter surround plate, you can then see one of the catches which hold the ashtray in place, push it outwards and it will pop out. Do the same with the other side when the N/S is out.
