2009 750Li rear seat armrest cup holder

Newbie here, first post, first BMW: I want to replace a broken cup holder in the rear seat armrest. Got the replacement part (52207228646 realoem).

Took it to a popular local BMW shop and I guess they're more mechanically-oriented. After wrestling with it for a while it was concluded they couldn't do the work.

I read lots of cup holder posts here and appreciate all the alternatives, challenges, other models, etc. I've got the front-facing leather cover off. There's supposed to be a way to remove the armrest tray insert to gain access to screws holding the cup holder assembly in place.

Can anyone help me out with a more detailed how-to description, or recommend an information source? Thanks.
