haha dude to get the gear shifter off you just have to undo the nut thats right under the handle then just grab ithe knob/shifter with both hands and spin it anti clock wise and undo it, it has a thread so just spin it off like undoing a bolt.then every thing else comes off pretty easy just watch out you dont brake the plastic thing that slides up and down.

yeah easy man.first you have to pull out the ash tray,theres one screw there holding the cd player sorround there.pull the surround off then you have 3 screws along the top of the dash facia ontop of the cluster one screw on each side under the steering wheel and afew behind the cd player surround which you will be able to see once removed.

then once you have the dash facia off you have four screw holding the cluster in undo them un plug the plugs on each side of the cluster and thats pretty much how you get the cluster out.

there are six globes that light up the surround they arnt hard to work out which ones they are and one will light up the odo meter.look at the front of the cluster and see what the signals are and that will give you a rough idea on which ones not to remove.
while your there might aswell change the one in the clock.if they dont seem to light up propperly then take the globe out and turn it the other way because led's only work one way'd

if i missed anything please correct (uniacidz)

cheers Daniel
