you must remove the molding around the instrument cluster then the clear plastic cover over the gauges, then you must remove the instrument cluster by taking out screws and disconnecting all three wire harneses, and then disconnect the speedometer cable from the back of the speedometer (make sure speedometer is fully disconnected or else the cable could snap.) Once cluster is free on the backside each light is labeled, turn the plugs counter-clockwise to unlock.
