glove box removal on W126

Hi everybody,
I took off the glovebox today on my 1987 420 SEL looking for that blower that gets the air to the temp. sensor next to the dome light.
As I had some trouble with pulling the box out until I realized what kept the box in, I thought I might help others in the future by posting 3 little pictures.
First the 7 connectors that hold the box in,
second the catch, that is screwed in with 2 small Philips-head screws and
third the plastic block that sits on top of the box behind the latch. That is the one that gave me trouble. The upper part of the glovebox needs to be pushed down so that this block can clear the latch part.
Hope the pictures will appear in order and make everything clear.
