I looked around the dash but can't see any fasteners or anything. Any info would be appreciated, my gauges will probably be here monday and I wanna put em in [Image: smile.gif] Thanks!

The bezel is attached w/ phillips head screws. Follow around the edges, there are a bunch in the gap between it and the center stack, etc. Look around with a flashlight, you'll find 'em. If you need more specific info let me know, I had a few too many tonight so my memory is a little hazy right now. [Image: smile.gif]

Once you get the whole big trim piece of that goes around the cluster, 2 center A/C and left side A/C vents, it will be obvious how to remove the cluster.

That big trim piece was the part I was stumped on. Thanks!

You have to remove the trim around the headlight switch and the ride / reg-prem switch to get at the bottom 4 screws. The top /side screws should be easy to spot if you look with a bright light.
