Yes, you must remove the facia panels to get to the lights up there. You also have to remove the panels down near the knee roll as well.
The top roll comes off if you want to have access to the instrument lights. It would have been nice if they'd made the wiring long enough for you to pull all of the instruments out from the front and not have to reach behind, but on my SY car you can't do that.
The workshop manuals are quite detailed, but they were written for people who "do this for a living" and, thus, don't include every tiny detail.
