ML 500 Coin Tray Removal

Does anyone know how to remove the sliding coin tray located above the sliding ash tray in the center console? For some reason it won't stay closed and I have no doubt there are probably 19,000 gum wrappers interfering with a catch of some kind behind or above the drawer.

I pulled the ash tray compartment out but its not giving me any access...

You'll have to pull out the whole fascia. Pull the ashtray first, remove 2 side-screws to take the ashtray compartment out. There are 2 catches on the top side of that opening, I don't remember how to unlatch them, then push the fascia UP and pull out.
The coin tray has its own 2 side screws. It is a closed box, not like the ashtray.
You can disassemble it when it's out. Good luck.

I know it's an old thread but has anybody fixed this without taking to the dealer?
Mine just popped out and wouldn't stay closed.*

Late, I know. But I've just used this thread to replace my broken coin tray - thanks to all previous subscribers. Here is some further detail, picking up from the point at which you have removed the ash tray by unscrewing the two retaining screws:

Unlatch the fascia clips by placing a makeup mirror where the ash tray was, use a headLamp to see and a flathead screwdriver to disengage the black plastic latch on each side. Keep the broken coin tray in place by placing a matchstick between the bottom of its tray when closed, and the adjacent horizontal strip of fascia. This should peg it shut. Disengaging the latch with the screwdriver with one hand, pull the fascia slightly out with the other. Repeat with the other side. The whole fascia will then lift up and out as am_beagle says. Disconnect the wiring looms only after taking a picture on your phone of the layout for later reference, then set the fascia aside. The coin tray assembly is held in by two clips, similar to the two clips securing the fascia. The clips are either side of the bottom corners of the tray front. Pressing down lightly on each clip releases the tray, which will then slide out easily. Replace the coin tray and reverse the disassembly. Getting the fascia to clip back into place requires some fiddling of the two locator flanges, one on each side. Once in place it will slot vertically downwards into those flanges, then clip into the two clips on the base. Easier said than done. Feel free to send questions.
