typically there is a tab at the top of the ashtray in the middle. it might even be where you put the cs (cancer stick) down. press it down while using a slight pulling action and the tray should come out. this is generally a dash type. door mounted types usally just pull out.
once the tray is out you'll see 2 screws take them out and your ashtray will pull right out as well.
