If it's the same as the Focus , then lift the cover above the steering column , there you should see two Usually T20 hex screws , remove then  , drop the steering wheel down and pull on the cluster  , it should come out and then un-clip the wiring

The bit of dash trim above the steering wheel below the clocks, pull it directly towards you, that reveals 2 screws you need to take out.

At the top of the clocks, the 'ceiling' in front of your trip computer has a round circle cover that can be levered out with a tiny flat head screwdriver. That's the 3rd screw under there that you need to take out.

Then pull clocks towards you :)
