From memory, I think you can get to the back of that panel with your hands by first removing the larger panel above the pedals, only 3 or 4 large screws need to be removed to drop the lower panel.

Also, take a look at the RROC-Australia Tee-One Topics Archive and the Tee-One Topics Master Index File.

I was going to direct you to Chapter S in the Workshop Manual, but even the one that comes from Bentley Heritage seems to be missing the section of Chapter S - Section S12 - that covers this. And it's been my experience that if it does not exist in the versions available from Bentley Heritage it simply was never published. That's the case for sections of a couple of chapters, and not just for the SY series cars.

The finished surrounds, parking release handle and the bonnet release come off. There is a tie in fastener at each top corner if I remember. Best tools would be 1/4 drive, swivels, extensions BA2 socket. RR is known for making things complicated and their luv for brackets.

You are a master of understatement. Boutique engineering that raises Rube-Goldbergian to new heights!

They also, at least in the SY era, had a tendency to grossly overengineer certain things that would never in a million years break and underengineer other things that should never break. It's not like there are tons of these in every square inch of the cars, but it's enough to be really, really annoying when you have to deal with either situation.
