Bloody how to get Au Cluster out

I read some articles around on it but still cant get the bastard out. I can pull half the clear front of but cant seem to get the bottom half out. Once that is removed do i just unclip it pull her straight out. Im finding it hard thats all and i can here the plastic stressing. Dont really want to break enything.

You have the right idea,very tight fit.I broke the clips on the clear lense cover taking mine out but when I pushed it back in you can't tell I broke anything.In theory you are supposed to push the bottom part in and the top part comes out but the fit is so tight all I could do was grap the top and pull not very proffessional

Use allen keys to pull it out. You insert them into the screw holes (after you take the screws out) and pull. It should come out fairly easily.

I can take some pictures of me taking mine off if you like (the cluster - keep it clean!).

Now you tell me about allen keys.Makes sense when you think about it.I was always told I would make a good butcher.
How do you pull a radio apart to change globes?

I used a screwdriver and wedged it out, then pulled it out with pliers
