There have been numerous videos of doing that.
Try searching....I think you will find it.
I'm too lazy to do it for you.

Hey, Larry.
Bear with me here, as it's been a few years since I've handled that style of gun. I'm working from memory. I'm pretty sure that on Kimber's Micros, after you have the gun otherwise stripped down, you'll rotate the safety UP, about another 90 degrees past the "on" position. There will be a spring-loaded detent plunger behind the safety. When you rotate the safety up, the plunger and spring will shoot out. If it doesn't hit you in the eye, it will fly across the room and be forever lost. Or you can just put your thumb over it so it doesn't shoot out. Once the safety is rotated up far enough, the right side can be removed. I forget if there's a tab or a slot that keeps it mated to the left side. It's not rocket science, so once you get this far it's easy to figure out.

To summarize, rotate the safety up, don't lose the detent plunger.
