Good morning! The screws below the front panel are size 1/4" hex nut screws so a 1/4" nut driver or 1/4" socket should work to remove them. Sometimes there is a star cut out in the center of these screws and if so then you also have the option of using a T-20 torx bit screwdriver to remove the screws.

We are on the honor system here.
