How to remove plastic strip below glove compartment

My car has 73000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Generally, these dashboard trim pieces are held in place with small retaining screws or clips. Look underneath the piece for any screws that might need to be removed. Then, after you’ve ensured all the screws are out, pull the trim piece straight out to disengage it from any retaining clips. I’m not exactly sure what plastic strip you’re talking about, so this is just a general procedure and you should proceed with caution.
