Hey there, you have just the latch? Or the entire lid?

The original latch fell off. I have the latch and the two screws. I cannot get access to the screw holes.
Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 8 months ago

you have to pop off the plastic piece on the INSIDE of the armrest, it should look like 3 separate pieces on the inside face, the inner and outermost trim pieces are removable to dis-assemble the armrest.

Is there any type of button or latch that I need to push. Do I just pry them apart with a screwdriver
Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 8 months ago

You will pry out the center trim piece so you can disassemble the armrest. The outer should also be removable but the piece in between those two is part of the frame so it cannot be pried off.
