Taking Port Side Cabin Stairs Off (380 S2)

I am trying to lead some wires from where the refrig is to the DC fuse block. Got them around the table, but making it across the steps is difficult. I decided that taking off the steps would be a simpler method. Took out the screws, but as I lifted them off, there is a 'knee' piece of wood under the salon floor and screwed into the top of the stairs that prevents the steps from rotating out. This piece of wood is a support under the floor and seemed to be stuck. I asked my dealer about it, and he asked Lagoon, and they said it is 'glued to the bottom of the floor'!

What?

So
1. Has anyone encountered this, and what have they done
2. Probably more importantly, if anyone has taken the port side stairs off, can I get the wire easily, or is this not going to help anyway?

Thanks

i went from under the topp step. but you can also go down from under the seat and under the floor and back.

Thanks. I did try to remove the wooden knee, however it is glued! I tried to work a scraper in and did remove some glue, but not all, and didn't want to use the heat gun or break it, so I did actually get a coat hanger from the chase under the seat to the electrical panel. I was able to see the hanger by the knee under the floor/top step!

I left a string from the electrical area to under the seat for future use.

I understand why they are gluing this now to prevent creaks etc, but this is a very poor idea.
