w124 instrument cluster removal

I hate to say it, but I just tried to remove the cluster,
and I had no luck. I would begin pulling with the hooks
in place but the hooks kept slipping out. Fortunately,
nothing was broken or scratched.

Any other tips, for example, the EXACT position of the
hooks when pulling it out? How about tips on technique?
I am a weekend mechanic at best.

I was trying to pull mainly from the lower portion of the
vertical sides, where there is a wider gap. It came out
maybe 10mm, then would not come any farther before the
hooks slipped.
