I have a 98.
You need to cut that piece to get the new plate and speaker to fit in there properly, but not to get the cover back on.
If I remember correctly,
the cover itself has 2 "push in" studs that snap into the dash when pushed forward, then 2 screws on the side to secure it.
Here is a few pics of my install from another thread.
You'll see where I cut the metal peice out out so the plate and speaker would fit.
And here's the link to the entire thread if you need it:
