95 Ford Taurus Dash Cluster Panel Removal

I have a 95 3.8L Ford Taurus and I'm Unable to get enough slack to pull out and disconnect the cables. So far I've got the dash panel off and the Cluster detached from the dash, but I'm just not able to pull it out. From what I can tell Its the left side that is the problem. I have not disconnected the cable that leads from the shifter to the Cluster, but had no effect when I loosened it.

Dash cluster removal.


If you have a digital display cluster:
Remove the body ignition fuse 14. Remove the steering column trim cover. Lower the steering column. Remove the five screws under the upper edge of the instrument cluster trim plate. Pull outward on the upper edge of the trim plate, working around the entire panel. The lower part is held in by trim clips, they can be stubborn. Disconnect all of the switch connectors behind the trim plate and remove it. Remove the screws holding the cluster in place, I believe there are four, maybe six. Pull the cluster forward, disconnect the electrical connectors (there is no speedometer cable) and pull it out.
