how hard is it to replace this trim panel shown below in an EF Fairmont? Some idiot broke the one in my car trying to flog the stereo.

Maybe i should rephrase that; can that panel be removed or do i have to take the whole dash out?? It's been a couple of years since i last took the dash out of an ef and i just can't remember.

Unfortunately, the dash will have to come out to replace that panel.
