This is what it looks like to replace it....you decide on what your level of mechanical knowledge is. I hope this helps you!

Removal & Installation

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the lower instrument cluster cover as follows:
    1. Remove the steering wheel. Refer to Section 8.
    2. Remove the 2 column cover screws and the cover.
    3. Remove the 9 cluster module mounting screws.
    4. Carefully pull the cluster module outward and disconnect the electrical connectors.
    5. Remove the ignition switch illumination bulb and remove the cluster module.
    6. Loosen the 2 cover hinge screws and the 6 upper cluster cover screws. Remove the cover.
    7. Remove the lower cluster cover panel.
  3. Remove the lap duct and the defrost duct.
  4. Remove the mounting nuts from the hinge bracket.
  5. Remove the steering column upper mounting bolts/nuts and allow the steering column to hang down.
  6. Remove the screw securing the ignition switch to the ignition switch housing.
  7. Disconnect the 4 ignition switch snap connectors located to the left of the steering column.
  8. Remove the protective looming from the ignition switch wires.
  9. Note the position of each wire in the 4-terminal connector for installation reference. Disconnect the 2 wires (green wire and red wire/orange tracer) of the key-in warning buzzer at the 4-terminal connector by disengaging the tang with a paperclip or other suitable tool.
To install:
  1. Connect the 2 wires of the key-in warning buzzer to the 4-terminal connector as follows:

  2. Install the protective looming around the ignition switch wires.
  3. Connect the 4 snap electrical connectors of the ignition switch to their mating connectors, pushing together until the locking tangs are in place.
  4. Install the ignition switch into the switch housing and secure it with the screw.
  5. Raise the steering column into position. Install the upper bracket bolts and tighten to 12-17 ft. lbs. (16-23 Nm).
  6. Install the cluster support nuts and tighten to 6.5-10 ft. lbs. (8.8-14 Nm). Install the hinge bracket nuts and tighten to 12-17 ft. lbs. (16-23 Nm).
  7. Install the lap duct and defroster duct.
  8. Install the lower cluster cover panel and the cluster cover.
  9. Install the ignition switch illumination bulb. Connect the electrical connectors and install the cluster module with the attaching screws.

Had coolant Bypass line break on the road just got it home had 0 oil Pressure fixed the hoses the next day started it noticed the coolant being pushed out of radiator im guessing a Blown head gasket...


sorry for the delay. if it is like that than your head gasket is bad. that is the only two common points other than the head and cylinder wall! if you do the head gasket make sure to take it to the machine shop to be pressure checked and resurfaced just because it's aluminum.

good luck and if you need any more help please ask

My cooling fans and blower have stopped working on '89 Ford probe turbo; all fuses are Ok.


Do you have the twin cooling fan set up?one is for the engine and the other is for the AC.these can be replace through the aftermarket parts stores. The blower for the heat/ac can be replaced. You can also test these units if your unplug them from the harness,and use jumper wires to supply power and ground.

I have a 89 ford probe 2.2L turbo but its not telling me the amount of boost by the RPM


check the wires on the guage. Replace the guage if the connectors seem fine. Make sure all connections to engine and to guage are not corroded.
