How to remove under dash panel?

Hi guys, can anyone tell me how to remove the drivers side under dash panel and knee airbag on a 2013 focus? Previous owner installed a cheap alarm and I'd like to remove it. Thanks

I don't. I would have tough. The actual pocket looks small compared to the face of it.

I have the panel with a knee airbag in the center and the obd port on the left in a small compartment.

I figured out you have to unbolt the airbag from behind and then the panel is only held in with clips. Pulled on it and it popped out.

There is a side panel on the side of the dash- pry it off and take the torx bit bolt out. Then it just snaps off
