    Open the glove box - there are screws inside. I pulled the glove box out of my '98 Corolla years ago..I seem to remember it being fairly straight-forward.

    There are two screws below the glove box as far as I can remember (Just had mine off 4 months ago, along with all the other interior panels.)

    Two screws up top and two down below...

    Squeeze the sides in at the top so that it comes all the way down? There are usually little stop tabs there which limit how far it opens, and it's usually flexible enough to get them to release.

    That's how you get behind many gloveboxes without removing them. Just shove it back up carefully to put it back to normal.

    Here, I took pictures of my 02 Prizm (AKA, Corolla) and I took some pictures for you... I don't know how you are missing the screws to be honest:

    Once you remove that interior panel in the second picture, you will see the other screw.

    there are two 10 MM bolts on each side of the box, towards the botttom, also you will need to take off the right kick panel, near the speaker, one bolt is over there.
