how to remove the instrument cluster?

Expert:  b5demon replied 7 years ago.
there are two screws at the top of the bezel that surrounds the cluster remove those two screws and then remove the bezel once the bezel is out there will be 4 screws holding the cluster in remove those screws and the pull the cluster out towards the steering wheel and disconnect the electrical connector and then the cluster can be removed the rest of the way to get to the bulbs
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

Expert:  b5demon replied 7 years ago.
there should be two on the bezel that go from the cluster up into the dash if not try just pulling out on the bezel
