Kickpanel insulation

So- in my quest to turn my old ass Defender into a Range Rover not-supercharged. I have the insulated kick panel "things" to install. Did the driver's side all by myself. I have the correct AC friendly part for the passenger side.

I know the correct way to install this would be to remove the AC, install the trim piece and then re-install the AC.

BUT I don't want to do that. So- any ideas on how I can shove this up behind the AC in the passenger side?

Or do I just cut it down and then shove it back there.

I'm also a realist and know that this is probably just a placebo effect- but I have these parts and couldn't sell them so here I am.

Basically have to pull the AC. Otherwise you ought to just toss it in the bin as it won't look or work right if you try to hack it. Not even Ron good on this one.

Oh, that part that's one piece for each side? If it was the big one piece, I'd agree with Ron, but I have to admit I cheated when installing one of those in my Tdi 90. I loosened the AC and worked it in and out of position a few times, cutting just what I needed to get it into position. You looses little of the insulation/sound deadening properties, but it actually better than Ron good per me,

Loosen, cut and wiggle I will. Sounds like something right up my toddler's alley. Thinking some tape on the cuts and I should be good to go. There are two holes with tubes/wires and one of those is the drain.

Oh the silence this will provide
