    Removing Clear Cover Gauge Cluster

    Can someone please explain to me how to remove the clear plastic cover that is over the gauge cluster on a 2002 Trans AM. This is what I want to do. I want to put a decal like this on my gauges:

    I think I have to remove the bezel part of the dash and I think it has clips.

    I did this two days again. Bought the same decal too. Pull off the dash. Put down the steering wheel. Take the four 7mm screws on the guage out. Take out the guage out. it has little clips that hold the lense/bezel to the guage. I did it with a flashlight at 3 oclock in the morning.

    THEN I DOOMED THE STOCK ONE! BASTARD WAS SCARRED AND SCRATCHED TO HELL! FOOTSMASH FTW!

    The clips are huge but if you want you can use a flathead. Really simple. The hardest part is getting the guage back in. Its a tight fit. The foglight switch has to be disconnected on the dash. Its a clip too.

    The guage and lense/bezel are one piece.. They pop apart..into two.. Its gonna come off. Takes 30 minutes. Its worth it!!
