Normally the instrument panel (#1) snaps in and is held with clips. You can take a flat tip screw driver....wide one and start on the edge and gently pry it. PLEASE remember that it can chip very easy.
Many times I grab the different areas that the arrows are pointing to with one hand and pull at the same time using the screw driver or a wide tip scraper.
Again, the problem is these things can chip easy so you want as much as possible on the flat part....not just a small little piece.
To verify it has clips you can check with your Ford parts department and you should be able to purchase replacement clips. They can give you a print out of the pic with the clips. Then you know exactly each spot a clip is.
Again, this pops out, then there are screws that hold the radio in.
