Removal of mirror control on center console

Is it possible to remove the mirror control on the center console without taking off the entire console? I lent my Rav to my son and it came back with the 4 way mirror control 'pushed in" and I cant figure out why. The control is mounted in a way that there is a rectangle all around it, but I cant figure out how to get it out.

Yes, I removed mine by sticking my hand into the cubby hole, expanding it as much as I could, then pulling up sharply. It worked after a couple of tries. Another member here said he pried it out with a screwdriver through the gap behind the hand brake lever. That panel just snaps in and out.

Thank you both for he great suggestions. I was able to reach under it via the handbrake hole and "pop" it right back into place. It's seems obvious but it never occurred to me. Thanks again
