If you're talking about the flip-top compartment in the center of the top of the dash I can help you. Open the lid and remove the rubber pad in the bottom. That will expose 2 small hex screws (7mm, I think). Remove the two screws.

Then grab the little bar near where the latch closes and pry up. It will take a little force. This is the side of the cubby closest to the radio display. Once you get that area loose, you lift it up about an inch and then you can pull the whole assembly rearward, away from the windshield.

It took me a little while to figure it out. At first I tried lifting at the hinge side of the cubby but that end has two tabs that go under the dash top and you can't lift that end up without breaking something. So lift the latch end first and then pull the cubby rearward to get the two tabs out.
