Thumbs up you need a hook tool for this...

two thin wire hooks that slide around the cluster to free it from where it is. All you do is pull and it will eventually come out. Once you have it sitting on your steering column, you disconect all the wires on the back (the speedo cable needs to be unscrewed, similar to a garden hose) and you are set.

Be carefull not to scratch the dash with the hooks.

Hope this helps,

Screw a hook tool, I used two flathead screwdrivers, It pops the cluster out much smoother.

Don't pull the cluster out without undoing any mechanical speedo cable first, either at the trans or from behind the cluster, from underneath the driver's side footwell. You probably won't even need pull hooks or screwdrivers if you do it from behind.

Make sure you push the hooks in far enough to catch the BACK of the cluster. Screwdrivers will scratch and damage the surrounding parts.

Good luck,
