Behind the glass?

Hi, do you know if once that is removed you can clean behind the glass which covers the speedometer and tach? I've got some water stains or something behind there which are driving me insane - MUST CLEAN!

Removing OEM gauge cluster: how to

These pictures were taken on re assembly.

1: first put the steering wheel in the downward rearmost position.

2: grab the middle plastic piece and slide it towards rear of vehicle

3: the fabric piece clips into steering wheel, it pulls up easily.

4: there are 2 torque screws that hold the gauges in. One below each of the big gauges. Remove them.

5: the gauges slide out. They are in tight but with the 2 screws removed there is nothing else holding it in. Angle the gauges out passenger side first until there is resistance from the wire.

6: The electrical connector now needs to be removed. The connector has a tab that needs to be depressed in the centre.

This allows the retainer to be flipped (like a light switch)

This is locked position

Open position

7: the assembly can now be slid out towards passenger side with wiper arm in down position.

Disassembly of the gauge cluster.

There are 4 clips on top, 4 clips on bottom.

Outer piece comes off

There is nothing holding the rest together
