With great difficulty! You will be very very lucky to get them off without breaking (at least one of) the tabs that hold them in place. Basically you need a strong wire hook tool (I made one from a coat hanger hook 😉), hold the cover at the back nearest the windscreen with your hand and pull towards you and up and you'll feel the rear catch release (that's the easy bit). Then you need to slip the hook down either side of the cover towards the front (near the gauge) and unhook the plastic clip. There is a guide online somewhere.

It IS a pig of a job

Was thinking of replacing mine with carbon fibre pieces but removal seems a bit of a pain.
