4x 8mm bolts first 2 are behind the upper vents ( they just clip out ) second 2 are behind the heater controls ( pull the rotating dials off and you will see 2 screws to remove the cover ) the bolts are behind that

Wow you've got to be kidding me. That was SO easy! All you need is a metal hanger bent to fit around one of the bars and pull.

Thanks for the help!
