What is the easiest way to access the instrument panel?
I want to remove the gas gauge and clock for repair.

I dont know if I'd use the term "easy", but from what I recall last year when I replaced my speedo, it was 2 retaining bolts that hold the entire assembly (all guages) on. Just take the top of the dash off (yes, the entire top) and draw a legend of where each bulb/wire etc. goes before you start pulling wires out of the backside of the cluster. Once that is done loosen off the retaining bolts and the whole cluster will come out the front. I doubt it would take more than an hour to do this. I should emphasize labelling the wires and drawing yourself up a bit of a legend for this-theres alot of wires back there!
