Default 2000 GTP - A/C Evaporator Removal

I can't figure out for the life of me how to get to this thing. I got the entire dash out and now I'm looking at a large support beam with a big black box (HVAC?) underneath it which I presume contains the A/C evaporator somewhere. I need to replace it because its leaking somehow. I assume that I need to remove the support beam to get inside the big black box.

I've removed the whole dash, removed all of the bolts I could possibly find from the steering column support brace, and it looks like that thing is holding it down, and I can't get it out. The only bolt left back there is the bolt that holds the brake pedal, which I cannot remove because there'* no way I can get to it.

Has anyone replaced one of these before?

Here'* what I'm looking at:

If i remember correctly there are 2 hidden bolts on the inside of the dash behind the plastic vents on the left and right side thinking those are the ones you missed but it has been awhile but i remember i had the same problem trying to figure out how the dash support comes out. and did you unbolt the hvac box from the firewall? that is attached to the dash support if memory serves

Yeah I got the vents off and got those bolts off, but something'* still stuck somewhere. Is it not possible to get the hvac box out without getting that support beam off first?

I ended up removing the whole beam to get it out never tryed to remove it with the beam in place i would certainly try i will have to do this to mine soon because my evap core is leaking as well are the peddles maybe holding it up? i think i had to remove the booster.....man i wish i remembered i had to remove the booster anyway because the car was a complete part out everything came apart so fast i really didnt pay much attention):
