My 2 cents -- there are 3 screws along the edge just under the glove box door, there's a screw into the right kick panel*, there's a big plastic screw where the panel curves to meet the center console. The plastic screw takes a quarter turn.
The panel should droop when those screws are released. From that point you have to negotiate the release of the ducts and however the forward edge holds on to the firewall.
* this varies by year. Some years don't have a a screw holding the bottom panel to the side panel.
