Hey Amber,

Not too difficult to do.

First you need to remove the ashtray which will reveal a couple of screws that hold the radio surround in place.
Remove the radio surround.
Once you've done that you need to remove the instrument panel surround, it is held in place by 5 screws and a series of clips around the left hand side surrounding the clock/computer & heater outlets.
Remove the 3 screws above the instrument cluster and one either side of the steering wheel at the bottom of the panel surround.
Then gently pry the surround off being carefull to disconnect all the wiring harness connections to the various switches etc.

If you lowerer the steering column as far down as it will go it will give you a little bit more room to remove the surround.

Once you've removed the surround the instrument cluster is easily accessed and is held in by 4 screws.

Good luck :D

Cheers,

Alan.

Wiring the High series into Low or Mid series is another matter thou; best to search for info on that as its all there somewhere, few people have done it and made doco.

Easy to get clusters in and out as Sierra has pointed out. However mid series and high series clusters have differring plugs on the left hand side of their respective clusters.

I've written a doco that only needs a couple of further items sorted on the car and that's it.
