60/40 seats I assume?
You'll need to unwrap the upholstery on the backside of the center seat section of the driverside seat. Once that's done, there's two or three bolts on the underside of the seat, then it's loose and in your hand. Unwraping the upholstery in that area allows you to actually remove the armrest w/ bracket. Otherwise, when you unbolt it, it will still be trapped under the foam and upholstery.
Some lids just unscrew from the 'cubby box'...simple lid swap. But I think my '01 wasn't like that.
