first you should disconnect the negative battery cable if you have an air bag equipped probe. wait for two minutes, then on your dash, there are some dash retainer screws which need to be removed, there should be 2 abouve the cluster on the trim piece, and some have 1-3 underneath the steering column. after that, remove the 4 screws holding the gauge in, pull it out, then remove the wiring harness, not the wires from the harness. then take the cluster to a well lit are and remove the screws holding the plastic cover on. if you have screws holding the gauges in place, remove those as well. you may need to remove the needles to get the gauges to fit if you cant slip them over the needles, as for the tachometer needle, temp needle, oil needle and battery needle, you need to either draw a picture of where they are or take a picture of them to place them back later. if you have to remove the needles, only replace the speedometer to 0, and the fuel gauge meter to where it last was when you had the car turned on. after you have the new gauges on, put as much back together as possible, and take the cluster back to the car with the pastic cover off. hook the wiring harnesses up to the cluster and hook the negative cable back to the battery. turn on your car and wait about a minute or so, then replace all other needles to the position where they were when you took the picture of them. turn off the car and remove the negative battery cable, wait another two minutes. hook up the wiring to your parking lights as this is the best place to draw power. and hook the ground to a secured ground suck as the fender or something metal on the body/chassis. replace the plastic cover and replace the cluster in the dash. attach all screws to reassemble the dash. finito. Good luck.

To remove the instrument cluster on a 97 Malibu, first remove the screw at the bottom right of the radio's molding. Then remove the molding and the screws under the steering wheel. Remove the entire molding surrounding the cluster and the four screws to remove the entire instrument cluster.

on both sides of the instrument cluster there is a panel switch and dome switch, these pull straight out. After you get them out remove the clips from the back of each. Straight back behind the stering column there are two star screws (hidden by a rubber piece) remove those. Pull the dash cover straight out (might be hard). once out remove the star screws from the instrument cluster then pull it out. It will be easy to remove.
