2 phillips screws hold the cover in place:

1 on the cover itself
1 on the hood release latch.

Once the screws are removed, pull the cover back - you'll see the FRM in plain view.

To add to this, the FRM is up in the top left corner (by where your left foot would be on the dead petal, and to the left). It's slightly a pain to get that top plastic bolt, but if you loosen it and remove the bottom one, it will slide right out.

if you need a used FRM mated to your car permanently, let me know. Not sure what the reason is for you playing with it, but I assume an FRM to FRM2 or FRM3 upgrade

Edit: Why would your footwell module be shot? I have not seen one go bad before..

(Make sure to check all fuses too just as an extra measure)
