How to remove USB / AUX hub?

Hey, can anyone explain how do I remove the USB / AUX hub inside the centre console?

Looks like its flush fitting and should lift out, but how? Theres nowhere to prod or prize up and out...?

Any help would be appreciated..thx

Because the shitty quality of the plastic stem inside has seen it snap off inside a usb stick... which is a common occurrence on these.

Thanks for reply re screwdrivers... the other winning option is to screw a short fat screw into the aux port, wait till she comes nice and tight, then grab your favourite pliers on the screws head, and pull up & out.

Strangely enough I changed mines on sunday as I changed my interior to cream leathers. And the small screw drive trick worked a treat.
