do i need to take off the whole front dash to take off the guage cluster?
i cant take the plastic infront of the guage cluster off... i took off the steering column's molding... but the steering-wheel-height-adjuster is preventing it from coming out
this is on a S13

You need to lower the steering column by removing the two 12 mm bolts that hold it in towards the front of the steering column. If this isn't enough play, loosed the 2 in the back to the last couple threads, but do not remove them. Hope that helps. Also, there is a large tutorial somewhere on the net. Search for 180mph speedo swap or something like that. It's pretty detailed and straitforward.

just pull off the panel right under your steering column... then drop down your steering column (this makes thing a bunch easier..)then it should be self explanitory after that...
