316 throttle cable came loose from the throttle lever

when I went to move my 316 to its "summer quarters" yesterday I noticed that the throttle cable was no longer attached to the lever in the dashboard. I 'm stumped as to how to remove the dashboard in order to reattach the cable to the lever.

at some point in its life it appears there was a bolt on each side of the dashboard at the front/bottom. but with these bolts missing there is still something holding the dashboard in place.

thanks in advance for any advice.

I wonder if it might be easier to remove the throttle lever and then reattach the cable. 2 nuts hold it in place but I fear you might find something else wrong as they don't just become unattached. Those 2 nuts are accessed by opening the hood. Mirrors and flashlights are pretty common tools for those hard to reach places. If no access then start disassembly.
