c230 drivers lower dash panel removal 1997

I have remove all bolts, screws and hood release but the panel is held by some type of clip at the top of the lower panel on the left side of the steering wheel. Can anyone tell me how to get the panel loose for the clip or ever how it is held on. This seems to be a problem on a 1997 c230. Thanks

I figured it out after a couple of days. There is a retaining clip at the top of the panel on the left side of the steering wheel that has to be released. You pull down on the bolster and locate the clip with a small slim screw driver. it is 3 to 4 inches from the steering wheel. You locate the center of the clip and push down. If your is like mine you may not be able to see it as they covered it with leather but it is there. I will post a diagram on how it looks.
