    In my 1981 camaro I have disconnected the two bolts through the firewall and the one through the kick panel but it won't come off. Is it glued on? What am I doing wrong? I need to get the drivers side kick panel off.

    Is the tar-like, sound deadening material causing it to stick?

    Also, according to a post in that thread (#9), there's a bolt at the top of the assembly, not just through the kick panel.

    You can see the upper, slotted bolt hole in this photo:

    upper and lower bolt and 3 nuts. ( 2 on inside firewall and one on a stand off in side.
    Yep the sound deadening junk was melted on mine and had to wiggle it off.
