How to remove dash panels to get to clutch master cylinder?

The clutch master cylinder in my wife's 2008 Cooper S has gone out and I am attempting to replace it myself. I have removed the main panel below the steering wheel only to find there is another, larger panel behind it. I have removed to visible torx screws from this panel but it sill will not come loose. Of course as I am a bigger guy, and have HUGE hands, I cannot access the nuts on the master cylinder bolts to remove them with this panel still in place. As I remove panels that are easily accessible, it seems that this panel is more in depth then initally thought. How do I remove the second panel below the steering column and any and all additional panels to gain access? Is there an easier ay to get to the clutch master cylinder other than below the steering column?
