Anyone know the procedure for replacing the sun load sensor in a high series BF?

Do you have to take the dash out, or can you get to it bu taking the ICC and clock panel out?

1. Remove trim panel from sensor from rearward
facing edge.
2. Using two screwdrivers carefully pry sensor out of
instrument panel.
3. Lift sensor out until wiring prevents further
movement.
4. Tie length of string around wiring below
connector. Disconnect sensor from wiring. N.B. If
wiring returns through access hole, instrument
panel may have to be removed.
5. Assemble in reverse order.
