Default Microwave Replacement in 2006 Maxum 3100 SE

I am trying to replace the microwave on our 2006 Maxum 3100 SE. We got old microwave out through the opening in the cabinet face. However, there are no current microwaves that are short enough to get back through the opening. We have one that is close and will work if we can get the cabinet opened up. Does anyone know how to open up the upper cabinet space? We can't seem to find all the places where it is fastened. Any information you can share would be helpful! Thank you!

Pic loaded sideways, but upper opening is for coffee maker, lower opening is for microwave.

Take a Zip saw like device and cut the opening to size or rv store or call the manufacturer of the microwave..

The old MW company doesn't exist anymore. But we did find a MW that would work if we got the cabinet face opened up to get the MW inside. Thanks for your suggestions. Update: We kept removing screws and brackets to get the cabinet opened up. It was a PITA to open the cabinet, but we got it done. It involved finding all of the brackets and screws holding it together, which led us to opening up the vinyl covered board at the top of the cabinet and pulling out the fridge to get at the brackets hidden underneath and behind the cabinet face. Happy to report that the new MW is installed and we did not have to cut the opening, so it still looks nice.
