squeaking from rear console

Hi Z4 owners. I haven't posted for quite some time and have just been enjoying the car. When I first purchased my 2005 Z4 3.0 in 2015, there was an annoying squeaking sound coming from behind my head. I found the cause through this forum and fixed it however it has returned and I can't quite remember how I went about the repair. It involved opening the top section of the rear console. Inside there are springs and they rub against the plastic causing the noise. I applied some white grease around the springs and it has been good for 4 years but I suspect the grease has dried out. Can someone advise on how to open up the top section of the console? I think someone posted a really good DIY with pictures on how to do it.
