Question about 1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
The gauge cluster is removed by taking out several screws from the surrounding plastic panels, and two screw sticking upwards into the ceiling of the recessed area of the gauges. A trim-panel fastener removal tool can be very helpful for prying up the plastic panels once all of the screws are removed. There are metal clips that will hold the panels in place once unscrewed, and short sharp prying movements with this tool will usually disengage these clips. You may want to wrap some tape around the pry tool to avoid marring adjacent surfaces. You will probably have to move the steering column to it's lowest position and if the shifter is on the column, put it in 1st gear (with engine off, of course), to slide the gauge cluster itself out over the wheel. There will be a couple of plastic wiring harness connector behind the cluster which should be disconnected before pulling the cluster out fully. Be careful not to stretch or crimp the cable for the shift position indicator when working on the gauge cluster. Once you can reach the back of the cluster, you will find small plastic circular twist-in fasteners, each with a raised ridge across the middle. The come out easily with a 1/4 counterclockwise turn. The larger ones usually hold common #192 or #168 style small bulbs. The smaller ones often have permanently attached bulbs in them, and are replaced as whole units. These are usually stocked at local dealerships. Just make sure to match the part numbers when replacing them. Reassembly is the reverse of removal. Be careful to align the metal clips with their slots before giving the plastic panels a firm smack to reseat them. If misaligned, the clips will bend and give you much trouble.
