Instrument panel cluster is what it is referred to as. To access and remove it, you need to remove the upper dash pad. In order to remove the dash pad, you remove all of the dash outlet vent grilles, and behind each one there is a screw that attaches to the pad. Also under the defroster grille, I believe there is three or four screws. Once you remove the upper pad, I believe there is a couple screws and wire connectors to the IPC, and then it lifts up and out.
