Removing sunglasses holder?

Is there a way of removing just the door/holder? I see a bunch of guides on removing the entire assembly including dome lights.
But I only want to remove the actually dropdown door.

I broke the gear that slowly drops it when I removed mine. It's possible to just wedge it out. But I'd go the safe route remove the assembly. I have yet to get it fixed

Ah thanks for the tip! I guess I'll try to find some time to take the whole assembly out.
I just wanted to glue some felt inside so it doesn't rattle with my glasses in there. Guess it's a bigger project than I expected

I wouldn't put sunglasses in there without any felt. Hell even with a lining it will still scratch. I usually wear TAVAT sunglasses and when I bought my last pair I was told to never use them as they scratch the lenses.

A craft shop like Michael's has sticky-back felt 8.5" x 11" sheets.
