I got the instrment cluster out of the car and I am sending off the speedo and tach to the shop, while it is away being repaired I thought I would clean and paint the inner cluster housing. how did you remove the lense to get to the inner compartment?

You may get a quicker response if you PM him. That way he gets an email notification that you are trying to reach him.

sorry for the delay...I used a micro flat head screwdriver and carefully pried the plastic lens off. But i recommend using painters tape and an exacto knife and doing it that way. I accidently snapped mine like some one on the forum predicted..lol but it was a careless slip up by me...as i was changing the bulbs inside my instrument cluster i rested my elbow clean in the middle of it (being clear and rigid) I didn't notice it under a few scatted item and "POP" went the lens...my heart sank..lol..then then I was pissed...then depressed..so I made one..
