hey there, prob a stupid question nut when i pull out the ef cluster is it easy to take the front see through plastic off and change the dials? does it just pop out or is it screwed in somehow??? Can someone shed some light on this before i pull my dash apart. Cheers

just be careful with it i guess.

ive pulled the cluster apart to fit dials a few times and snapped nothing. Lift each clip just enough one by one till it all pulls apart

Kinda easy..get a fork to take the needles out and then the dials pop right out. The clear plastic has 2 scres and a few clips. the cluster itself is held onto the dash with 5 screws.
Do you know how to get the facia off?
