Instrument Cluster Removal

I can not seem to find where anyone has instructions on taking out the instrument cluster(RPM's,speedometer,gas,engine temp). I bought a prelude today and on the other side of the plastic, there is dirt all over it, to the point that I can not hardly see some of the numbers. Anyone help point me in the right direction for some instructions?
Thanks.

Re: Instrument Cluster Removal

what gen do you have? if you have a 5th gen, look in the DIY on how to replace your gauge cluster bulbs and i believe it tells you how to remove it.

Re: Instrument Cluster Removal

If you do have a 5th gen, it is very and I do mean very easy to remove it.
Lower your steering wheel to access the two screws at the top underside
if the cluster housing. Remove those and gently pull off the surround.

Once you get that off, you will see some more screws that need to be removed.
Then is is pretty simple. Pull out the actual cluster, and remove the cluster harnesses
from the back side. This will let you pull the cluster completely out of the car.

Now to remove the plastic cover, there are four plastic tabs. Gently press these
down to get the plactic cover off.

That is the Cliff-Notes version, but once you get the first two screws removed the rest
is simple to figure out. To install again, just go in reverse (DUH!!!)

Good luck !

Re: Instrument Cluster Removal

Thanks, yeah it is a 5th gen. Its a 2001. The more I seem to rub on it though I think it is on the outside of the plastic but nothing will even make it somewhat come off. Has anyone else had a problem similar? It looks like semi-white flakey stuff on the plastic in front of the RPM's and Speedometer.
Thanks

Re: Instrument Cluster Removal

What is the stuff you take off headlights your talking about? I have one headlight that is yellowish on the outside and I can tell its on the outside because when I put water on it it goes back to clear. Any help?
