To remove the instrument panel I have to disconnect the wiring loom.

I don't think I should need to be rough and I can't figure how this connection breaks apart. Does it snap off? Slide off? Whats with the round headed bolt? Do I have to butcher it?

Hmmm

Thanks FlyingDuck
Well I snipped the cable ties but nothings coming free.
I also removed the round headed bolt but found it only holds down a central cover. Taking off the cover just exposes the individual wires going into the cluster.

None of this is letting me remove the loom from the cluster.
I can't see how that plug is supposed to come off. Is it on a track and slides back? Or is it a male connector pressed into a female socket at the bottom of the cluster?

I'm trying to be gentle. Maybe too gentle?

While you have the instrument panel off you should strongly consider upgrading (at least the backlighting) to LEDs.
I just did mine and I really like the new look.
And the reliability is noteworthy as well.

Just an unsolicited opinion...
