REMOVAL & INSTALLATION



See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5

The gauges are part of the instrument cluster assembly, each of the individual units is screwed to the cluster and connected by a printed circuit board and wires. The cluster housing can be separated to remove the light bar or replace the lens, it is clipped together by plastic tangs.

If replacement is necessary for 1992-95 models (except del Sol) replace speedometer and tachometer as a unit. If replacement is necessary for 1993-95 del Sol models, replace speedometer and odometer/trip meter as a unit.
