Unscrew the 2 screws then pull up and slide the back out from under the trunk wall trim.

No, you take that button off the wire (it comes apart) only if you need to remove the fabric trim.

Lift it enough to slide your hand inside, then push the black tray up from the back-most part of the tray, around where it meets the trim. Lift it towards the center, away from the positive pole.

Do that, and it will pop off.
