Ok this is absed on EF/EL. I am assuming AU isnt much differnet.

Unclip the plastic faces.
Take out any loose items; in the EF/EL case the black bit surrounding the dials.
Gently pry the needles off.
Then just pull of the faces.

Looks nice. Iv had those bay $70 ones before they where ok at first but the surfance scatches easy. Also after a few months they started to warp due to the heat from the bulbs happened to my car and my mates.

The guy also cheaped out on mine and removed things like the world 'normal' from the temp guage and things like rpm x 1000 which i felt it made it look tacky.

I purchased some of the $200 ones damn expensive but quality is fantastic and they glue down to the surfance as well which stops itlighting up other sections of cluster.
