the dash panel in our sample 55 reg Eleganza is secured by;

3 philips self-tapper screws along the top edge( clearly visible )
one self-tapper that is tucked down the LH lower edge ( door pillar)

once the screws are removed the panel is still "clipped" into the dash,

it Slides to the left( with car door open)and will come away quite readily.
