DIY: Taking out the gauge cluster (56k ha no)

my old post

Since the DIY guide for this is dead on this site and people have been asking me how to take it apart, I decided to make a short and simple diy. It only takes me 5 minutes to take everything apart now..


10 mm socket with an extension
screw driver

1) use the 10mm socket to unscrew the bolt below the hood latch

2) unscrew all the screws under the steering column panel

3) carefully seperate the top and bottom part .. it's just a snap on. It should come out like this....

4) now that the steering column is exposed, pull down the lower panel and it should snap off.. As shown here, it has been slightly pulled and seperated....

5)now that the lower panel has been pulled, let it hang as low as possible leaving everything exposed. Next use the 10mm to unscrew the two bolts circled and remove the metal bracket.

6) After that, remove the 4 10mm bolts holding the gauge cluster ( 2 circled, and 2 on the other side not shown)

7) Next remove the signal/ wiper assembly. There are two tabs, one on the top and one on the bottom.. press both tabs and pull. It should come right out. On the wiper assembly, there's plug connected to it. Take out the assembly then remove the plug or which ever way is easier for you.

8) now here's the annoying part. now that the gauge cluster is loose and moving around, you have to wiggle the whole assembly partially out to get access to the plugs that's behind the gauge cluster, but first you have to unplug the power mirror switch plug. Use the screwdriver to presss on the tabs to take the plugs out. Press the tab and PULL. After all the plugs are out, work the gauge cluster out. I would recommend putting towels over the dash so you won't scratch anything.

that's all folks. hopefully i didn't miss anything.

Do you know if the guage cluster on the G35 is the only thing that records the mileage on the car?

Vaid question. It would be nice if the mileage was stored somewhere else in memory, but from what I've read in a similar thread on Driver it isnt.
When ppl have replaced theirs with the nismo or JDM, their mileage starts over, is my understanding.

probally not the smartest question to ask out in the open makes it seem like you are trying to make you car not record mileage

i did this with those intructions, works fine

the real pain in the *** is unclipping the guage wires in the back if your not tech savy at all...

and theres a diff way to unclip the mirror adjuster thing, instead of disassembling it you can just unscrew the whole thing and just screw it back on after...have fun

With this off, can you see if there a way to lower the tilt steering more?

There was a "fix" similar to this for lowering the drivers set slightly (unscrewing a lock nut a few turns) and I'm wondering if the same can be doen for the power tilt steering?
