How to remove instrument cluster speedometer on a chevrolet Impala

1. First, open front doors and leave them open. Remove the exposed left and right fuse panel covers by pulling straight out with a finger in the hole. Remove single Phillips screw from each end of the dashboard plastic where it wraps around.
2. Remove two screws from the dashboard above the instrument cluster.
3. Depressing two clips, lower the plastic cover above the foot pedals and let it hang carefully on the footlight wires exposing two screws holding a panel below the steering column.
4. Remove the two screws from this panel, lower the front slightly and pull it towards the steering wheel. It should pop off exposing a single screw on the bottom of the dashboard plastic to the left of the steering column.
5. Remove this single screw and the whole dashboard can now be pulled off from around the instrument cluster, radio and steering column for its full length. The heater vents come with it. Pry gently but firmly with fingers across the top and bottom, back-and-forth across the full width until all the dashboard clips snap out. The steering wheel should be lowered fully and the gear lever put in first gear to get it out of the way. This will require having the key in and in the ON position. The dashboard will pull over the key. There is a plastic insert with the off/on/acc. key positions which snaps over the key lock and it may come off with the dashboard. Once the dashboard is reinstalled simply snap it back in. Once all the clips have released pull the top of the dashboard toward you carefully so the four-way flasher switch on the upper right of the cluster is clear of the top of the dash. Squeeze the clip and remove the plug from the back of the switch. This done, the whole dashboard can be removed carefully from the car. It is long and flimsy.
6. There are four screws holding the exposed instrument cluster in place. Remove them and pull the cluster gently towards the steering wheel exposing the single wiring harness plugged into the top right of the cluster. Squeeze the single tab on the plug fully and pull it out of the cluster. Remove the cluster fully from the dash.
