If I remember rightly, take the radio out then on the inside of the dash there's 2(?) 10mm bolts beneath where the radio was, that should enable you to take the fascia off and then reveal the 4 torx bolts for the heater panel. Im sure someone will correct me though!

Just pull it out, there's a blue and yellow cable pull type thing, just unhook them and unplug the connector too - there's enough slack to pull the panel out and not break the wires

The pics above are from when i changed the bulbs... Recently, as someone said the 4 tabs is by far the easiest, the only thing id mention is the fact that mine were soldered to the bulb holder!! And i didnt realise till i shattered the bulb trying to get it out lol
