partial cabinet dismantling

I posted a similar "ask" in the electrical area because my need to do this is centered around electrical/solar upgrade work, but in hindsight maybe I should have posted on this forum, so I am posting here also.

I am hoping someone will have guidance to share regarding how I remove some portions of the cabinetry (without damaging them) so the work is possible. Are all these cabinets generally glued together ? I don't find any screws I would remove to facilitate dis-assembly and I am reluctant to start attempting with a crow bar or pry bar. Also need to get behind the two overhead cabinet end panels (into void space I hope) for routing some cabling. I hope to put my victron BM-712 in the upper right end panel but need more access to do it cleanly. Will these things come off ?

for those in a similar situation, I finally figured out the approach to be aware of. It seems that overall assemblies are the norm, not individual panel pieces. After much searching around, I found enough screws to remove that an entire section of the bench (the section with the curved surface) was removable, giving me easy and free access to all the electrical wiring that enters from the front floor. Look for separations where entire sections of cabinetry can be removed, not individual boards or panels.
