    there are no screws holding the upper extension panel do i remove this?

    Here is how to remove the upper extension.

    Object Number: 348506  Size: SH

  • Release the upper extension by pulling outward on the front edge in order to release the upper retainer clips.
  • Remove the upper extension from the trim panel by lifting up and out.

    You are correct there is only one screw on the armrest. The second screw in the illustration is behind the door lock control on the door. This would be the item that you push forward and back to lock and unlock the door.
