I need to replace the instrument lights and fix the rheostat on my '79 300D. The book says to simply pull the cluster out, using (fingers!)or a "dash tool". My question is; does the cluster really just kind of lay in there, without fastners? Can I really just "pull it out" by jambing something between the cluster and the upholstered housing? As for the rheostat, is it easily removable/replaceable from this position, and are the lights behind the cluster or in those little "drop down" things at the top of the cluster?
Thanks again for your excellent site.
