    1. Lower steering wheel as far down as possible.
    2. Remove steering wheel adjustment rod.
    3. Pull off panel around gauges.
    4. Unscrew the four 7mm screws holding the gauge cluster.
    5. Pull gauge cluster straight out.

    alright that was very easy, infact easier then I remembered it.

    Now I am on to installing the new gauges, I'm pretty close to having everything back together. I also have some new led's to install, I don't know how to install these fucking things. I was thinking I would just undo the lights from the back, but I can't get these lights to come out. Are you suppose to take the cluster completely apart and get to the lights from the front? If you are suppose to get the lights out from the back which way do you turn? I'm reefing on them pretty good and don't want to break the damn things.

    i think almost all cluster have small twist tabs on the back of it. You twist and pull it out and one of the bulbs is attach to it. You should have multiple plastic tabs.

    I cant remember for sure if our cars is the same but check on the back of the cluster.

    thanks for the help guys.

    The lights do just twist like you would expect them to from the back and come out. I was just getting paranoid of breaking them because they actually take quite a hard twist to break them free. However, the new LED's are installed with the new gauges and I have half the needles in place. Just have to fill up the car and have my tuner plug into the computer to see the rpms. Overall I love them and everything looks great! Much better then the white overlays I had before.
