yeah...so removing the a/c vent cover and switch panel took about 1 minute.....no tools required...remove the a/c vent panel first....than lower switch panel....
while driving to work...i was able to push down on the top
to unclip the black stopper that was holding the gray handle...enabling me to push the gray handle to the side
releasing the wire clip....okay...it wasn't hard at all....another minute or less
at a stoplight....i was able to unclip the lower (shorter clips
)....just push down and push in your fingers to gently push up the holders on the panel....you can hear a small "pop"....after you remove both lower clips...the rest just comes right off....another minute....

You actually rotate the grey clip as I remember - it's like a 'handle' - pull it up - away from the switch and it will rotate liek a handle. Does that make sense?
