How can I take off the dashboard on Hyundai Santa Fe to change the deck?

I have 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe. The old CD deck died so I bought a replacement and some accessories. Now I'm trying to change the deck but got into some trouble - I have no idea how to remove the dashboard to take the old deck out and put the new one in. I'm quite proficient with audio and electronics but had very little experience with the cars.
So, how can I remove the dashboard? There were 2 screws nearby, I removed them but the dashboard still sits solidly in place. Other screws are quite far away to be of any reference to the dashboard. I didn't notice any buttons or release levers or anything else of the sort that would be helpful. Any tricks I should know of?
I couldn't find anything online. The manual doesn't have any information whatsoever. And "take it to an expert and let him do the job" doesn't answer my question - I'm planning to do this work in the future again so I need to know how to do it.
A little assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Ok, already figured that out. Used Hyundai website - didn't know it existed.
