Re: Cluster lights

Are you talking about the gauge cluster? It's pretty simple actually, just a lot of screws. First you remove the headlight/foglight and instrument light dimmer switches from the instrument panel bezel. They just pull out. You can use a flat screwdriver to get them started. Then remove the screw behind each switch. Next, remove the three screws at the top of the bezel (under the upper edge). Once all 5 screws are removed, the bezel just pulls off, but you need to use a little force because there are spring clips holding it on still. When the bezel is free, disconnect the switches (cruise control, sunroof, emergency flasher, etc...). The bezel should now be free from the gauge visor.

Next you'll want to remove the instrument panel visor. There are six screws for this, two on top (you can see these if you look through the windshield) under plastic caps, and four in the bottom corners. The top screws are hard to get at if you don't have a stubby screwdriver. Remove the visor after all six screws have been removed.

Next you'll want to remove the lower dash panel, under the steering wheel, and remove the speedometer cable. It just pulls straight off.

Finally, there are four screws holding the gauge cluster to the dash. It's a little finicky disconnecting the connectors on the back once the screws are out, but there should be enough slack in the wiring harness to lift the gauge cluster and get your hand underneath.

Installation is the reverse of removal. Make sure you don't pinch any wires when you put it back together.

This procedure is in the online service manual, page 16-85 if you want to see drawings of where the screws are located. I don't have my car anymore to do a write-up of this procedure with pictures. Hope this helps.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
