If any one knows how to remove plastic pannel by brake pedal to get up under steering wheel please respond? I get it off the back bolt but it does not bend all the way and i dont want to break it. I am trying to see if there is a lose wire up under there. I found wires that was pulled out connected to gear shift interlock(one black, one blue). I am trying to solve interm electrical problem. Car will not start sometime then if you hit brake and move gear shift it will start but you have to wait for radio to light/come on/doors to lock/unlock. All warning lights come on/off while driving but more so when stopped. i am thinking it is the interlock and maybe more wires pulled by brake pedal.because code reader does not get power all the time and have to move it to get power. Also Will be driving and all gauges will go crazy/not read at all including mileage. it will say error sometimes but other times car runs fine with no problems at all. Have had the Bcm replaced at dealer but did not fix. warning lights that come on and off brake,trac,anti lock, service engine in message center,security,service traction, and radio will say lock/calibrating. When it really acts up you turn car off and cooling fans stay running and horn wont sound when you click remote 2 times. Also I have no emergency brake and all electrical stuff started when back brakes was replaced.

Are you talking about the black plastic? Idk if your talking about the same piece im thinking because the piece im talking about is not held on by screws, but it does have some stuff that look like black screws/bolts...If so I have pulled it off by bending it. It hasn't broken or cracked on me but when ive done it I do it carefully n take my time.

The trim panel closest to the firewall (in both footwells)is just held in with clips at the edge closest to the seats.  Just gently pry it down a little at the sides till you can get around to the front of it and then continue gently pulling straight down.  It has 3(?) flat, wide "clips" that hold it at that edge.  I have found it is much easier to remove if the back is still attached and in place and not putting the clips in a bind.  You can register at gpona.com and get access to the online service manuals, a great help in finding out how the dealer does stuff, and for seeing diagrams of how parts are attached.  Good Luck!

Thank you I will try to get it off again just did not want to break it. The plastic is on a screw in the back by brake but I could not find any screw holding it under the wheel. I will try what you said and leave the back end on and try to remove clips.
