I just removed the cubby and the console out of my 2005 2.5i OBW. The interior hasn't changed from what I can tell since. The cubby is held in by plastic friction clips that are around the rounded corners of the cubby. They came out relatively easy with a rounded blade prytool working around the corners. Mine does not have the navigation package so I can not tell you about the plugs, but on mine there is a light plug on top that is easier to just pry the light from the clips than to try to press up on the release of the plug. The tighter and harder to get to was the plug on the mpg/time/temp display on the bottom which I found the wiring harness has the slack taped up behind the dash. Find something to push up on the white release tab to unplug it and the cubby will slide foreward out. Do yourself a favor when you get it out and cut the electrical tape on the wiring loom so you can pull it out father when you reconnect the plug. Be careful prying around in there because the passenger side airbag connections are just to the right of the cubby fortunately they are identified by the yellow loom.
