"Replacement of microfilter"

A serious question here to my fellow bimmer owners. I recently dug up one of the past articles here on this site which explained the proper way to change the microfilter on E36. The article which I later found out to be dated 1/19/96 was posted by "Jerry Skene". I tried to send an email to this person asking a question but it came back as "mail demon". So now I come to you guys, I followed the instructions to a "T". The removal of the kick panel, then I tried to remove the glovebox that's when my trouble started.

I got all the screws out, but there is a light above the center of the glovebox which is preventing me from going any further. The screw is at the top right where the light is stationed, and for some strange reason I can't figure out how to get it out. So now I have everything sitting on the ground hoping someone can help me I'm going in to my second year as a proud Bmw owner.

My wife told me to take it to the mechanic, but I figure I had instructions how hard could it be. Please someone help, or email me some type of instructions. Sincerly gloveboxless. lol !!!
