Default How hard is it to remove the instrument gauge cluster in a 2000 trans am ws6?

I am needing to remove my instrument gauge cluster on my 2000 pontiac trans am ws6. My questions are:

1) are there any tutorials anywhere of how to do this?

2) approximately how much time will it take to disassemble it all?

3) has anyone on here done this before and if so would you be ok with me PM you?


Thanks!

The shroud is held in by like 6 clips. Just pull it off, and you'll figure out the rest.

thanks... I am sure I will figure it out. Does anyone happen to know the approximate time I'll probably be looking at on tearing down, replacing, and putting it all back together? Thanks!

about 15 minutes unless your highly un-mechanically inclined.

Very very easy.....but be very careful not to let the metal clips scratch the clear face of the cluster.
