    Sorry but I have been looking and can't find a how to on removal of our gauges. I just don't want to crack or break clips. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    You need to take the entire dash out. It's a risk you'll have to take if you're doing it yourself.

    On a serious note, I know it's easy but I just wanted to make sure.

    Easy is subjective. I wouldn't trust myself, but that's me haha.

    I didn't have any issues with the clips on mine. From my experience, using Brian's 3rd picture above, my steering column got quite a few scratches from the bottom of the instrument gauges. It slides around when you're trying to remove the plug from the back of the instrument cluster.

    @csuviper thanks for the pictures. I guess I'll tackle it soon. It almost looks like the black plastic around my gauges will pop off once I remove the two screws from the top(without taking anything else off).

    @N8Dizzle Thanks for the heads up.

    Also, if you haven't already planned on it, keep the usb cable plugged in for future updates and hide in a convenient location.

    Thanks I was planning on the USB left intact. I was just able to get the hypertech CD. It shows exactly how to take the dash apart.
