You can pull the cluster with the dash hooks that merceds does provide. This cluster is totally electric so you do not need to worry about the speedo cable. There are many lights behind there, you just have to pick the right ones.

I'll recommend you remove left side dash speaker & left side a\c vent,use your hand push cluster assembly from behind(lower your steering wheel)without hooks. (becareful HOOKS may crack your cluster lens).
hope this help.
