The top rear service panel for the cluster is held in place with five torx bolts. If you remove it, you can access the cluster hold down bracket. It's removing those two bolts (I **think** they may be 13mm but it's been well over a year now since I've had one apart), a few bolts underneath the cluster, and disconnecting all the electricals.

When removed you can simply remove the hold down bracket and bend it back into place. You can try doing it with the cluster on the car, but I personally would not recommend it.

This all shouldn't take longer than 15 minutes to do.
