Disassemble instrument cluster (2001)

Initially posted to help someone replace broken levers, but may be useful to others:

The early clusters, 1997 - 1999 (?) are a little different inside. 2004 was pretty much the same.
Start by removing the cluster from the car. The Pelican Parts article, 101 Projects book are good for that:

Use extra care removing the connectors from the rear of the cluster. They can be very brittle. It may help to look in through the windshield as you unplug them.
Once the cluster is out, see these pictures for instructions:

I had a nap, then lunch with my daughter. Now, here's the rest:
In case you need to replace an LCD, add custom gauge faces, or are just curious, here's how to go further.
Note: Working with circuit cards and micro-chips be cautious of static electricity built up on your clothes or hands.













I'm not putting it back together. Figure it out yourself

I don't need to do this job, but kudos on the super clean write-up!
