Dashboard removal

Hello Guys!
There is some annoying rattling coming from the dashboard, I'd like to remove the whole plastic cover thing to take a look at. Anybody know how to do it?

Thanks!

Be careful if you've got the silver dash inserts. They scratch easily.

I'd take a look at your motor mounts first if you've never replaced them. A hundred times easier than pullin the dash and is probably the culprit

Same thing happened to me. I cut some small black tubing and lined the inside edge of the cluster surround with it. The rattle is no more. Took all of 10 minutes.
