GE Space Saver Microwave installed approx. 1980 took the 4

Resolved Question:

GE Space Saver Microwave installed approx. 1980 took the 4 bolts loose on the top but will not come out. Seems like a bolt is still holding the unit in the middle in the back as I can rock it a little and it drops about a 1/2 to 3/4 on one side and I can barely get my fingers on the right side looking at it. I unscrewed the botXXXXX XXXXXght housing and I don't see any bolt what am I missing or still have to unscrew?

I'll take the vent off the front top and also the botXXXXX XXXXXght panel to access the bottom. She just lives across the hall from me.

Yeah on those old microwaves there is a handle behind the grill you need to pull to release it, of course hold onto microwave when you do this it will be a little skinny wire type handle you pull forward towards you it's best to push the top of the microwave back as you do this and then let it come down, let me know if that doesn't work, thanks Bryan

Is it on the top or bottom that wire type handle?
