Default Taking off air bag cover?

I'm not sure if that's what its called at all. I've been painting interior pieces and I'm trying to figure out how to get the piece of plastic in front of the passenger airbag out.

It looks like i could ease it out with a flathead screwdriver, but I'm worried about the airbag deploying. Help?

Open your glove box and there are 2-4 screws holding it in

I think you can Unhook the battery to prevent it from deploying

if you do disconnect the battery wait a good ammout of time to remove. there is a capaciter in the airbag module. it could be any ammount of time depending on the year.an hour is a safe bet.
