How to remove Laguna 1 instrument panel

Hi folks, finally sorted the rattle behind the speedo cluster on the old Lag.

Pic 1. Remove corner trim/switch panel-just one torx screw and a sharp tug.

Pic 2+3. Remove three upper screws on the cowling, there are
usually two on the lower half of the cowling but fortunately the previous owner left these unattached as to access these you have to remove the cowling surrounding the steering column, all screws so far are T20 which is very helpful.

Pic 4.Remove the three screws holding the panel in.

Pic 5. After a bit of swearing tilting and wiggling it's getting close.

Pic 6.It's out

The last pic is where the clips to hold the cowling at the bottom should be, but as I said these had been removed earlier. Before putting it all back together I checked for any loose bits and took all the connectors apart and sprayed with WD, also I glued rubber washers to the mounting holes with aquarium sealer, all back together and the rattle appears to have stopped. The first pic is a bit out of focus but I was out on the town last night and haven't quite recovered yet
