I am currently trying remove the cluster on a 1987 300E. I purchased the two hook tools from MB. I hooked on to both sides and gentlely pulled, I managed to get both sided to come out about 1/4 inch, the only seem to see saw in the middle. In that when I pull on one side the other side slide back in. I don't seem to be able to pull both sides out at the same time.
Is there a trick to this? I have put quite a bit of force. Anymore force and I think that I may break the edge of the cluster. I looked from below and there appears to be enough slack on the speedo cable.
I am hooking onto the front lip on each side which is about 1/8 thick. Am I doing this correctly? Any suggestions?
