thanks for the reply. where the clips are? and how to remove them? i only found the 2 7mm screws upward of the cluster side.Certainly,
The black surround covering the cluster there is two 7MM screws that screw in facing up towards the upper dash pad, basically on the top of the black piece you will see what I mean, pull those out, and it is held in with clips, makesure steering wheel is tilted down, then there is either two or four 7 MM screws holding the cluster in itself, pull those and just pull towards you, that is it.
thanks. i removed all the bolts bolting the gauge cluster to the car, 8 torx bolts and 4 hex bolts.As stated above just pull the surround away from dash when the screws are removed it will pop off.

now i want to take the gauge cluster out but i can't because it is hitting the steering column and the clips brackets? is there a way that enables me to lower the steering column so that i can get the gauge cluster out? or there is other way i can do to get the gauge cluster out?
You certain about this? I recall having to remove around seven or eight torx to remove the gauge cluster on my '96. Even after all the correct screws are removed the gauge is going to fight coming out, and has to be slightly twisted and pulled to release it from the two sockets in the back.Put the 8 torx back in the cluster, those don't need to be removed, this holds the face together.
As far as it hitting do you have the steering column tilted all the way down. I was pretty sure that the cluster would come out with the dash all together. Not sure one this one. But it may involve removing the lower dash assembly, this is easy also, there are a host of 7MM screws on the bottom, the ashtray and slider assembly will have to be removed also, after you find all the screws, drop open the glove box and pull, same style clips that hold the surround on hold the top portion of the lower dash on. Good luck and sorry for the confusion.

There is no need to remove any of the dash paneling other than the gauge cluster bezel.
Furthermore, if I recall correctly the screws that hold the gauge cluster together go from back to front and are thus not accessible until the cluster is removed.
I'm nearly 100% positive on all I've posted here...
i replaced the temp gauge sensor but nothing changed and that was before i beging uninstalling the gauge cluster. btw, do you know how to repair the gauge cluster gauges and what parts i need to repair the gauge cluster.BTW, what do you plan on doing to the temperature gauge once you get the cluster removed and how do you know that it's not the sensor that's screwed up?
