    Hello!
    I posted a very quick simple video on how to do what you are asking.
    Enjoy!

    Yes,
    1st pop off those sliders, then get a plastic pry tool, start at the back of the trim piece. It pops right off. It won't take more than 20 seconds.
    Good luck!

    Is there enough clearance to wrap the trim piece without something rubbing?

    I'm reviving this thread just to ask if this really works like this? From teslarati I find that it's much more complex when they switched the armrest.
    I've wrapped all the trims except for the one of the armrest, and I'm still unsure how to proceed as I don't want to break the armrest.

    Yes, it is that simple. You won't brake anything.
