How to remove the instrument cluster? 00110

I would like to remove the instrument cluster from my K1100LT in order to insert a couple of 12V miniature fans to prevent condensation build-up.

My question is how do I remove the wiring plug from the cluster itself.  I cannot see any fixings, and the wiring plug is rock solid, but I do not want to lever away and break something.

Thanks in anticipation.

There is a rusty socket head screw in between the wires, undo that and the plug will be out.

Solved it!  A look assisted by a decent torch revealed a slightly corroded allen screw in the centre of the plug, which when undone allowed the plug to be removed.
