Push the rear seat backs forward. Slide the cargo cover to the side. Forget which side just now.

Two buttons. One on each side above the rear seat back.

I've tried push the buttons down and pulling them up, they only move a little bit, and don't want to break them, should I be pushing down or pulling up

Sorry, my first response was if it was attached to the seat backs.
To remove from normal use position, push down the buttons on each side (you can one at a time) and PULL the unit toward the rear of the car. If still not, you might try lowering the seats and pushing toward the back from the seat area (with buttons pushed). To have both sides stuck would really be a fluke. Maybe its stuck from shampoo or something.

I've managed to free it by jiggling side to side at the same time, thank-you
