Instrument console

To take out the instrument console can be very difficult the first time you try. The most important thing is to deal with the speedometer cable the right way, and take your time.

Make sure all the bulbs are working. Search until you find them all.


  1. Unscrew the two screws on the underside (one on each side).
  2. Unscrew two screws at the top in the middle, and two at the top all the way out at the edges.
  3. remove the top cover.
  4. Unhook the two metal hooks.
  5. Unplug the three flat lugs and the other contacts.
  6. Use a mirror and a flat head screw driver and push the speedometer cable (the light blue thing) completely off the yellow gray end that it sits on. Pry a bit at it with a finger so that it does not get stuck at the edge.
  7. Push the console a little bit toward the windshield and lift it carefully out.
