Check my post here: http://www.matrasport.dk/forum/index.php/topic,1504.0.html

There are two clips at the top of the panel. You can see them in the picture in the second entry of my post.
But before you can remove it you have to disconnect the speedometer cable and the clip that holds the trip counter reset-cable in place.
I have done several repairs to the panel itself, the instruments and the clock. Try searching for posts using "Jon Weywadt" as user.

Let us know what you are trying to repair. Perhaps we have a fix.
Regards.

You also have to disconnect the multi-way plug with all the wiring at the back of the panel.  Be careful as it is a flexible printed circuit board and easily damaged.  It is a good idea to remove the screw at the top right inside the instrument cowl, it is one of the ones that holds the heater control panel in place, as it may foul the instrument panel as you pull it forwards.

I can attest to that. When I removed mine I found that it had been previously damaged.
In the post I mention I also show the repairs I made to the flexible circuit board.
