Nope, just undo the two screws.

But you're got to pull the top of the cover towards you so it tilts forwards. That releases the catch at the back which slides into the dashboard.

May: DON'T hit it with a hammer!

Clarkson: Why?

May: Cause it's the tool of a pikey.

Nope just the two screws, there is a clip at the back, once you have the screws out, slide the dash top towards the steering wheel, not up.

When you tighten the rings you may have to add a bit of soft adhesive at the rear (I used a blob of silicone bath sealant!) as they don't have much purchase and tend to slip out of their threads. If you have the aluminium dash however that may give the extra panel thickness you need.

In the garage no-one can hear you scream

It seems that ptfe is a common fix for this irritating feature; I had both the same problem and solution.

PETE IN AZ. <_< When you do the job you may find the plastic locking rings are very very loose.....I made one cut in mine with a hacksaw then super glued them back together, they fitted much tigher then..never cam loose after that.
