the cluster, two screws in the top, under the cap thingys, and it should slide out after a little moving around and a little force.

yeah its only the two screw above it... and there's 2 plugs behind it... dont pull on the clear plastic... you'll break the clips... you can remove the drivers side air vent pretty easy if you cant wiggle it our... (pull the door seal off and remove the plastic bit that looks like a od semi circle then it should push out) the top of mine got tuck so i used a flat blade screwdriver to help
