There are a few bolts under the plastic strips that cover
a) ignition lock
b) light switch
Remove the light switch (pull out), remove nut and take off black plastic cover to access bolts on left side. For the ignition lock side it's just cliped/pressed in place so just pull it out - gently.
Right side under dash panel...I forgot, but you might have to remove the glovecompartment door? I seem to remember it was easier....
