PLS HELP: How to remove arm rest console cover ??

I am trying to replace the bubbling leather cover for the middle console/arm rest for my 2002 ML500, so I removed about 6 screws which was good enough to separate the top leather cover from the plastic base but only on the one half that's farther away from the hinge.. so I started looking for more screws but couldn't find any... I found 2 screws in the bottom layer which seem to release the whole compartment cover with the top compartment but that didnt happen... I want to pull harder on it but it feels like I will end up breaking it.....

Anyone go through the steps of removing this cover??
