Question Removing 2001 Cup Holder

Hey all,
this is my first post here and I'm hoping someone can help me out...I"m looking to mount a switchbox on the bottom of my dash, but the cup holder on the floor is in the way...does anyone know how to remove it (w/o breaking it preferably).

I've looked all over the damn thing for screws or 1/4 turn plastic locking things, but I can't seem to find anything anywhere...anyone have any ideas? Or know where I can find them atleast? Thanks in advance!!

Re: Removing 2001 Cup Holder

Sorry about that..one would think I'd atleast include the required info...it's an Automatic. I had read online about doing the manual ones, lifting up the rubber housing, but it's an automatic... Anything else I left out?
