Arrow Cup Holder Door is STICKING! How to remove & clean?!

On my C280, the door to the cupholders moves very slow and is sticking like crazy... must be some of the Coke spilling here and there! The door is between the center console and the shift console... anyone familiar with the removal process?

I do know how to remove the cupholders, as I have cleaned and lubed them a few times, but even with them out, I still can't figure out how to remove the door, or just clean the contacts!

Any ideas? Thanks a bunch.

Update...

Ok well I took out the cupholder, and soaked it in HOT WATER for about an hour. Then rinsed it out good, and relubed it with MB Lithium Grease. Then I did get the door off the cupholder housing, rather easily, and soaked the moving plastic parts/joints in hot water (not the entire peice... wood would expand!). I then rinsed it off real good and lubed the moving parts...
All was well thus far.

Though when I went to put the door back on, I noticed that the two main supporters did not snap back in and GRAB in their holes where they should have!! I noticed there are rings that grab it on the other side... which is unattainable by me! And I would never be able to get them back in properly without taking out the lower housing!

So to my question (phat chance!), DOES ANYONE know how to remove the LOWER plastic housing (at the bottom of the console, below the cupholders) from the console? There are no screws to unscrew. It only looks to me like there are two hooks/grabs holding each side of the plastic peice in place from the front of it (where it meets the console). I have tried and tried, and I will never get that door back on without removing it. Anyone (*crossing fingers*) know how to remove this peice?
