    Do you mean the scuttle panel? The bit that the wipers come out of.

    Never had mine off but I've just popped out to the car and looking at this thread
    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15125 it look like you just take off the wiper arms and rubber strip and slowly pull it away.

    Yep, remove the wipers - they can sometimes be partly seized and be a to remove so always an idea to pop a bit of Copaslip on the splines when they're off.

    Get a plastic spatula or similar and run between it along where the panel meets the screen glass, just to release it and unclip it.

    Then carefully flex the panel to allow the end bits to clear the bodywork, being very careful not to flex too much as the honeycomb section is the weakest point and can crack - as I found out when refitting mine in a hurry!

    Reverse procedure to refit, again being careful not to flex too much.
