Question about 1998 Subaru Forester
The easiest solution is to insert a flat screwdriver blade under the sides of the 'clock - roof switch' 'panel' and gently rotate it. This will cause the panel to jump out of the retention arrangement.
Refitting is to simply press the panel into place.
The clock itself is retained by two side locating strips, into which the clock assembly fits. Don't forget to remove the power cable first, noting the orientation for refitting.
Of interest, I assume you have lost the display. In two instances I have repaired, it is due to some of the components on the clock pcb becoming disconnected. Have a close look with a magnifying glass, and resolder (with care) as required.
