Square vent dash - gauge cluster removal?
Okay, finally swapping in a tach dash in my 1994 Sammy (almost 9 years in the making).
So I removed the 2 screws on the top of the dash, and the 2 screws at the bottom on the cluster. Cluster is loose, but won't come out. The hazard switch is in the way. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
So I remove the plastic from the steering column. I can only get the bottom part off, the top can't be removed because the cluster is in the way. (Catch 22) [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
It looks like I need to remove the 2 torx bolts that hold the steering column in place and drop the column out of the way (beginning to suspect that dash was installed BEFORE the steering column on the assembly line) so I can remove/install the cluster. Does that seem right? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
Anyone done this and is there an easier way?
Any tips on doing this to a round vent dash will NOT apply here. I've done that and it's cake. This dash is different and has me confused.
Other than that, I'm sooo happy. This will be the first time in 9 years that I will know what RPM my motor is doing. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
