Hey. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but they are glued on. I only yesterday removed the clear plastic from a spare one I aquired to fit Autometer speedo and tacho (therefore I wasnt worried about it breaking). If you are real carefull you may do it without breakage using small flat blade screw drivers but no guarentees.

hahahah a:) funny how its hard to remove the plastic and yet a spider gets in there ....

Okay, there are 5 screws up the top, and 4 along the bottom, well, not quite the bottom, (big ones) but at the back of the dash cluster itsself .

once you have removed them you need a flat blade screw driver to unclip the top clips ..... then it shold side out ..

done it many times..

Yeah - they are really long screws... bastard of a thing to undo when you are only have a kitchen knife to use.

I have one pulled apart on my desk right now... if you are desperate, I can take a photo, and highlight where the screws are.

Yeh. Didnt think of that. :oops: I just went mental and pulled the plastic clean off seeing as though I didnt need it. Lucky you didnt take my advise.
