SOURCE: gear indicator cable instrument cluster

On the 1985 Continental, you must remove the lower dash knee bolster under the steering wheel to get to the shif column end of the cable.Then disconnect the cable from the lower side of the column. The cable will then come up and out with the instrument cluster.

Is clear plastic piece in front of odometer part of the instrument cluster mask or part of the dashboard.


It really depends on the year and make of your vehicle.
On some older models, the plastic cover was part of the dash.
On newer models, the instrument cluster and cover are one unit.
Were you wanting to change bulbs or gauges?
You can remove the instrument cluster from the dash and then separate the cover for service.

How to replace the dashboard bulb in a 1999 plymouth voyager


Which light is out? Is it an instrument cluster light, or one on the temperature or A/C cluster? It it's an instrument cluster light, here is the process: (I'm assuming the 99 is similar to the 98) Remove the bottom dash panel under the steering wheel, remove the instrument cluster cover around the steering column. This will reveal the screws that hold your instrument cluster cover in place. Remove this cover and you can then see and remove the 4 screws holding your instrument cluster in place. Pull your instrument cluster out, remove the main wire connector, then you have access to all the instrument cluster lights on the back side. Hopefully you remember which one is out!
