Question accessing 2013 interior cabin fuse panel

I'm trying to wire in my back-up camera monitor to the fuse box on the inside of my car. It's a 2013 SE hatchback. According to the owners manual its underneath the glove box on the right side. Can't seem to gain access to it though, tried removing the glove box to see if that will help but can't seem to figure out how to get it out. Any suggestions?

There are two plastic retainers right behind the light on the passenger side unscrew them and take the cover off...

Leave the glovebox door closed and look beneath and you will find the retainers.

Black panel directly under the glovebox.

There is a little panel on right side of the center console. I assumed that was it. I don't know what that is but I can tell you it doesn't open easily. I gave up after leaving screwdriver marks on it.

Well still couldn't get good access to it, but was able to do what we needed with a couple of mirrors. Changing any fuses in the car would be a major PITA.
