Default Dash trim removal - 2004 A4 B6 cabriolet

Hey everyone.
I am applying Carbon Fibre vinyl to a lot of the moulding and everything is going great except I can't figure out how to remove the dash trim piece over the glove box.
All the DIY videos show models with a trim piece that extends past the center console and on my car the trim is shorter - ending at the console.
I have removed the glove box to get a look underneath, removed the 8mm screw at the door end and managed to pop it free from the clip at the console end.
PROBLEM: My problem is I can't figure out how to release the clips in the middle.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

UPDATE: Figured it out.
Remove cover at door end of dash.
Remove glove box.
Remove 8mm trim piece screw inside hole above glove box screw.
Now you have to get under the trim piece so you can look up at the bottom.
At the console end of the trim piece pinch the prong clip sides in and carefully release the end.
Using a small screwdriver carefully push the ends of the other two clips down to release them.
