83 280SL Directional Switch

Hi All,

I need to replace the turn signal switch in this car - I have the parts, but it looks like I need to get more of the dash apart than just the lower half. Has anyone done one of these? I know it's similar to a 380SL so I was hoping someone knows how to get the upper part surrounding the steering column apart, I'm not seeing any screws to attach and I don't want to start prying on things - especially since it's older and may be brittle.
