What is the best way to get the trim piece off around the guage cluster on a 1995 ford f-250. I would like to get it off so I can hook my A pillar guages to my head light switch but I do not want to break the clips off on the trim piece.
Thanks Lance

Should just pull off. Just becareful don't go ripping it off. You will have to remove the headlight switch knob though to get it all the way off.
