How to remove instrument cluster from AU

Hi all,

How do you remove the speedo, techometer cluster from the dash of an AUII?

Thanks in advance

1. Remove two plastic "grommets" from upper part of instrument panel ... fingernails will do it. Be very careful if you use a screwdriver or you may slip and damage the clear plastic.

2. Remove the two Phillips head screws now exposed behind the grommets.

3. Lower steering columnm and pull as far towards you as possible.

4. Carefully prise the instrument cluster towards you by inserting a smallish screwdriver into the screw holes at an angel and pulling towards you. Do a little at each side in turn being very careful not to break the plastic body surrounding the screw holes. I use a small screwdriver with the end bent at about a 45 degree angle to do this.

5. The rest is easy - three connectors, squeeze tightly while pulling away from back of cluster.

BTW - if you cannot prise the cluster in the way described you may have to remove fuse block - plastic cover pulls off and then there are two screws to undo and the fuse block hinges forward and then lifts out to swing down out of the way. Then you can reach up behind the cluster (just barely if you have thin hands/fingers) and push from behind to get the cluster to come out. Further to this, if you still can't get it out, you will have to remove the central pod and then reach around behind the cluster to push it out.
