    I'm in the middle of taking my dash apart to put in autometer guages in, I'm still using factory speedo and gas guage so I can't just break them out. I can't figure out how to get the speedometer head out of the dash so I can take the last plastic piece out. I have everything out except the last piece of plastic where all of the guages acually plug into and the printed circut board is on the opposite side of this last piece of plastic. I'm in the middle of working on it now so any fast help is VERY apreciated!!!!!!
    Thanks

    Get yer hand where the cable plugs into the cluster, there is a tab you have to push in and the speedo just slides out. Its a springy kinda tab on the bottom side of where the cable goes in...
