Default 03 Ram Dash defroster grille replacement

I'm talking about the front section of the dash on the 03 as well as the 04 I believe. This is the section where the defroster vents and tweeters/center channel speakers are located.

Does anybody know how I would go about removing and replacing this piece? Do I need to take the dash apart to get it in and out or does it just snap into place? It seems like it may snap in and out without further disassembly, but I think that may be due to the extensive sun damage making the whole thing seem loose.

So please, if anybody knows more about the removal/installation of this piece let me know as it is a terrible eyesore at the moment.
