Welcome aboard. For the cluster you have to pull the plastic surround out. There are 3 screws above the cluster that you should be able to see. Undo them. Underneath the dash where the switches for door locks, electric aerial etc are, you undo the screws on them, and let the switches drop down, there are 2 screws behind them for the bottom of the cluster surround. It should come out then it's just the 4 screws around the cluster and unplug it from the back.

For the trip computer you need the cluster surround out anyway as there's one screw behind it, just to the left of the climate control unit. There's another screw in that useless cavity behind the trip computer, then you have to pull the radio surround out. There are 2 screws at the top, pull it out enough so you can unplug the cigarette lighter and globes. Then with that section out you can access the 2 screws at the bottom of the trip computer surround. Then that section should come out, and the trip computer unclips. Hope this helps.
