Has anyone ever removed that panel in between the windshield and the hood where those two sets of vents are located?

Its on the pax side lower dash behind the glove box. Vents from outside eventually feed air through the evaporator. It gets clogged with all manner of disgusting crap.

Its quite a simple process - remove the glove box and you will see it. Lots of threads on here on various ways to remove it but in essence it's a case of unplugging a few harnesses and removing 4 nuts and a few screws.
Remember to remove the evaporator you need to discharge the AC and disconnect the high & low pressure lines from the pax firewall. Not a complicated process by any means by requires work on the AC system that may require a specialist.
