Wire cable along dashboard (118i F20)


I want to pull a cable along the dashboard on the right side from the side trim panel (A) to headliner (B). (See picture!)

What is the best way to do this? What do i need to remove? Some panels, the glove box, or the entire dashboard??
The main wire harness is going through there, but how do i get there?

I would think that if you remove the glove box and A-pillar trim it should be able to snake the cable through.
Start disassembling and see what you run into.
