Can anyone help me with this? I don't want to break anything! Are there screws on the dash that need removed, or just pull on it?

Remove these two screws and pull the lower cover.


Remove the upper cover and then unscrew the four srews that hold the instrument cluster.
Pull the connector and remove cluster.
My pictures in your last post will help also.

Thank you! Probably gonna try it later today!

Swapped out the clusters over the weekend, but I had to get the replacement programmed.

Had that done today, but the mileage is from the other vehicle where the cluster came from.

My question is.... can the dealer program the cluster to what the mileage should be? I'd like to know before I call them back tomorrow and ask why they didn't do it!

Thanks in advance!
