REMOVAL & INSTALLATION



1970-77 Cars

The instrument cluster on these models is not removed as a unit, instead each gauge is removed individually once the cluster bezel and lens are removed.

On models with a column mounted gear shift, when removing the speedometer it's necessary to disconnect the shift indicator cable from the steering column.

Always disconnect the battery before removal of any electrical gauges.
