Does anyone else get that annoying dust in their gauge cluster. How do you clean that out. I tried to figure out how to clean it out on my 98, but I was afraid I was going to break the clear plastic, so I have not attempted it on the 03.
yup, you can take the cover off and clean inside of it.
remove the light knob (hardest part of it all) you have to pull the little metal part away from the rod it slides on and then while its pulled back pull the knob out to remove it (have fun! i use a bent nail and find the slot on the side of it in the out position you can see the little metal flap that holds it down on the rod)
Then find the two bolts facing upwards (hex bolts) and remove those
Pop out the plastic cover (tilt wheel down)
Find the bolts that hold the cover in place, 4 bolts around hold the gauges in, remove those and you can pull/tilt the gauge cluster out to access the bolts that hold the cover on. Pop the cover off and blow it out with compressed air to remove dust, then re-install.
If after the light knob was removed you decided to destroy it due to it being evil buy an after mareket from someone like MGW it bolts on so you wont have to go down that road again.
