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

Thank you

The hardest part is getting the wires disconnected
