Now... how does one go about removing the armrest thing-a-ma-jig to then take out bottom bracket and replace with 3D printed one?
hi cptobvious. I got your message and am happy to share how I removed the charger cradle and disassembled it to remove the bottom bracket. All you really need is a pry tool and a T6 screwdriver.

1) Use the pry tool to lift the charging cradle from the front. Once the front is lifted, you can simple lift the entire cradle out of the armrest.
2) There are four clips (2 on each side) holding the bottom to the charger. I just used a flat head screwdriver to pop them out and then remove the charger.
3) Now the trickiest part, disassembling the charger. For this, I stuck a blade (pry tool was a bit thick) in the open space where the bracket moves and pushed down to separate the top and bottom halves.
4) Now you have access to the two t6 screws that hold the bottom bracket in place.

Below are pictures I just took of the step by step process. Let me know if I can be of more help.

BTW, with this mod i can fit my massive Note 9 on here.
