Someone on the other forum said that the dash can easily taken out using a special tool or by modifying a wire hanger.
I am unsure with this method but I had one of my lights on my cluster go out. As my warranty was quickly expiring, the Service Advisor quoted me 4 hour labor time to take out and put back the dash in order to get the light bulb replaced. At $100 per hour, that's a pricy bulb replacement. As I got it repaired under warranty, I didn't look into labor times, etc. If your car is not under warranty, try the first method suggested and see if it can be done.
