It may be possible to do it without removing the A-pillar trim, but I always pull them off to make it easier to get the speaker grilles out. It's not difficult. Those trim panels slide down onto 3 fasteners in the A-pillar so to get them off you need to slide them up and out.
I pull upwards with slight outward pressure. Once off you'll see how it attaches. You need to use some care because the plastic underside of the trim gets brittle with age. It's not a big deal if you manage to break one of the fastening points though since the trim will stay in place just fine with the two remaining and it makes it easier to R&R next time. :)
It always seems when going in there I manage to leave an electrical connection loose requiring me to go in again, so I've lost count of the number of times I've had the dash top off. Once you've done it a few times it becomes second nature. (It's a pain but still better than having to work from underneath or pull the whole dash out like many cars require.)
