2. Remove the instrument panel cluster finish panel.
3. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
4. Remove the screws and remove the steering column covers.

10. Remove the screws and remove the instrument cluster.
11. Disconnect the electrical connectors.

To avoid damaging the instrument cluster lens, place a protective cloth over the upper steering column before removing the instrument cluster.
