You can't just move the actual "speedometer".The entire gauge cluster must be removed,to get to your gauges.To do this...there are two round holes/openings on your dash,directly above the gauge panel.Simply insert your fingers in each hole.Whichever finger is your strongest...beit your index,or middle...
Then,pull straight back toward you,'til the dash panel begins to separate from the console.Do not use to much force while doing this,as you do not want to break the clips which hold the panel in place.You may want to put your vehicle gear shift in low,for easier accessibility during this step.Next,you will have to unplug the wire harness for your head/parking/dome lights.This needs to be done in order to have full access to your gauge cluster.The wire harness is located diectly behind your headlight switch,and it's just a simple pull to unplug it.If the harness doesn't pull right out,there is a red tab which locks the harness in place.This tab may need to be unlocked to pull the harness out.Simply pull back on the red tab with a fingernail,to unlock it.It'll make a click type sound,once it's unlocked.
Next,look at your gauge cluster....there will be four screws holding the cluster in place.Simply remove the four screws,to free your gauge cluster.Once the screws are removed,grasp the cluster on each end,gently but firmly,and pull toward you.This will free your entire cluster.Now,you have your gauges in front of you.The clear plastic housing which protects your gauges can now be removed.Do this, by removing the clips which hold it in place.Be gentle if you remove the plastic housing,in order to keep from damaging it.
Simply follow these steps in the reverse order,for re-installation of your gauge cluster!

it's actually fairly easy. there are screws where the speedometer is and under the dash. remove them and the front part of the dash just drops. now the kit for aftermarket installations is hard to find for a 2001. the kit i used was for a 2000 intrepid. fits perfectly.
