There are many repairs that require removal of the knee bolster (below the steering wheel), and the glove box.
Removing The Knee Bolster:
This gray panel below the steering wheel is called the "knee bolster".
There was a screw in the back of the storage pocket below the steering wheel (red arrow).
Removing this screw required a 7mm socket (and extension) or nut-driver.
There was a second screw on the lower-right corner of the knee bolster.
I removed the two screws mentioned above and I pulled on the lower edge of the knee bolster panel. The left-side spring clips popped out first. The clip on the right side (at the top) was tricky to release. It's important to pull this panel striaght out (not downward) so the clips don't break. A little wiggling helps here.

Removing The Glove Box:
The glove box area.
This plastic fastener (red arrow) holds the glove box in place, and acts as a stop. There are two of these.
I used a pair of lineman's pliers to turn the fastener a quarter-turn counter-clockwise.
The fastener on the right side of the glove box was the same... turn counter-clockwise.
This black round device is part of the hinge for the glove box.
I forced a tack puller behind the thin plastic head of the hinge pin and twisted until the pin moved back.
The pin released when it had been pulled back about one inch. This pin was kinda snug, so it took a little effort to slide it.
There was another pin on the right side of the glove box.

There are two "ears" on each part that fit through slots in the side of the glove box.
