It's pretty easy to do. First look for 2 screws upside down on the top part of the frame around the old gauges, and unscrew them. THen put a flathead on the bottom part and pry it out, be careful not to scratch anything. THen just unscrew the gauge cluster and remove it to a comfortable working space. Then just unclip the plastic piece, install the new gauges, then put everything back together. Look on the stock wire harness on the left there should be a black and red wire, that's where you need to get power to they turn on with your headlights. It's really an easy job. The hardest part is getting the indiglos OVER the needle, just keep trying!
