you are going to have to remove the panel they are in and disconnect the wires and either put the new panel up or if you have the old one put that back up. hopefully that will help

you can open the instrument cluster by removing the torx screws located on top and in front on the cluster panel--need to remove the cover under the steering column and drop the column for easier access to the wiring and other bolts holding the cluster in position

The potentiometer is one of the two pegs that stick through the clear plastic on your instrument cluster. If twisting the peg doesn't bring the lights on, then remove the instrument cluster from the dash and take the potentiometer off. You can either replace it, or try to open it and clean the contact points (I've done this on many occasions).

there is a few screw to the front panel where the instuments are,remove them. them there will be a few smaller, I think their 11/32 screw heads,remove them after all that is undione the cluster should move around freely.DONOT PULL HARD ON IT! lower down the steering colomn then reach inbehind and remove necissary wiring and speedo cable. after that reverse the procedure and away you go on the road back to completion.
