There are several steps:
1. Take out the center cup-holder (it pops out with a little tug upward). unscrew the 2 screws.

2. On the shifter (lower part) there is a cover that covers 2 screws, unscrew and remove the shifter knob.

3.Take a pick tool and lift the shifter bezel console (black) it also pops up.. there are 3 or 4 connecters (disconnect with a small flat head screwdriver)

4. Once the shift cover is removed, there are several screws and tabs holding the bezel trim down unscrew the screws and lift bezel trim up,

5. Disconnect the ash-tray (blue connector)

6. Disconnect the hazard signal control , volume control connector and the climate control connector.( On the left side)

7. There are 4 screws holding the the radio and climate unit cage to the dash frame. (unscrew)

8. Now it gets a little tight, pull the unit towards you slightly and disconnect to connectors for the climate control unit (on top) and the factroy radio (on the bottom).

9. Next remove the radio and climate control unit from the cage(screws on the sides).

Before I post this for you, I just wanted to let you know that you can buy an aftermarket harness that plugs right into your existing harness. Then it allows you to hook up to the wires without cutting your factory wires. They might even have it at Wal-Mart for less than $15. Anyway here are the specs.

1995 Lexus SC400 V8 Engine. Everything is bone stock. Automatic Transmission. All of a sudden my Speedometer and Tachometer just don't move. It's at number 0. It does however lights up fine, it...


Since both gauges died at the same time, I would suspect either a connector issue with the dash cluster, or a signal issue from the computer. The RPM signal originates at the ignition and the speedo signal at the VSS. The likelyhood of those both dying at the same time is very slim. An easy way to check is to attach a scan tool and check in the computer for an RPM signal (running) and a VSS signal while driving.

Hope this was helpful!

Have a Lexus 1995 sc400. On the stereo the front tweeters work and the subwoofer work but the door speakers and two of the back speakers do not work. What do you think may be the problem? Jeff


Your amplifier located in the right rear trunk area wheel well has IC's transistors etc. that overheat from high volume as well age. I had mine repaired for about a 150.00 in Oklahoma city. Look on ebay for used might be best way to go..
