Instrument cluster components

Some of the components for the instrument cluster used in this vehicle are serviced individually. The serviced components include: the incandescent instrument cluster indicator lamp and illumination lamp bulbs (including the integral bulb holders), the odometer reset knob boot, the cluster lens, the cluster hood and mask unit, and the instrument cluster housing rear cover. Following are the service procedures for the instrument cluster components.

WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS, REFER TO GROUP 8M - PASSIVE RESTRAINT SYSTEMS BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY.

REMOVAL

CLUSTER BULB

This procedure applies to each of the incandescent cluster illumination lamp or indicator lamp bulb and bulb holder units. However, the illumination lamps and the indicator lamps use different bulb and bulb holder unit sizes. They must never be interchanged.

Be certain that any bulb and bulb holder unit removed from the cluster electronic circuit board is reinstalled in the correct position. Always use the correct bulb size and type for replacement. An incorrect bulb size or type may overheat and cause damage to the instrument cluster, the electronic circuit board and/or the gauges.

(1) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.

(2) Remove the instrument cluster from the instrument panel. Refer to Instrument Cluster in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures.

(3) Turn the bulb holder counterclockwise about sixty degrees on the cluster electronic circuit board.

(4) Pull the bulb and bulb holder unit straight back to remove it from the bulb mounting hole in the cluster electronic circuit board (Fig. 13).

(5) Gently pull the cluster hood and mask unit away from the cluster housing.

CLUSTER HOUSING REAR COVER

(1) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.

(2) Remove the instrument cluster from the instrument panel. Refer to Instrument Cluster in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures.

(3) Work around the perimeter of the cluster housing to disengage each of the latches that secure the rear cover to the cluster housing (Fig. 14).

(4) Gently pull the rear cover away from the back of the cluster housing.

INSTALLATION

CLUSTER BULB

This procedure applies to each of the incandescent cluster illumination lamp or indicator lamp bulb and bulb holder units. However, the illumination lamps and the indicator lamps use different bulb and bulb holder unit sizes. They must never be interchanged.

Be certain that any bulb and bulb holder unit removed from the cluster electronic circuit board is reinstalled in the correct position.

CAUTION: Always use the correct bulb size and type for replacement. An incorrect bulb size or type may overheat and cause damage to the instrument cluster, the electronic circuit board and/or the gauges.

(1) Insert the bulb and bulb holder unit straight into the correct bulb mounting hole in the cluster electronic circuit board.

(2) With the bulb holder fully seated against the cluster electronic circuit board, turn the bulb holder clockwise about sixty degrees to lock it into place.

(3) Install the instrument cluster onto the instrument panel. Refer to Instrument Cluster in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures.

(4) Reconnect the battery negative cable.

CLUSTER LENS

(1) Align the cluster lens with the cluster hood and mask unit.

(2) Press firmly and evenly on the cluster lens to install it onto the cluster housing.

(3) Work around the perimeter of the cluster housing to be certain that each of the latches that secure the cluster lens to the cluster housing is fully engaged.

(4) Install the instrument cluster onto the instrument panel. Refer to Instrument Cluster in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures.

(5) Reconnect the battery negative cable.

ODOMETER RESET KNOB BOOT

(1) Position the odometer reset knob to the mounting hole from the back of the cluster lens.

(2) Pull the odometer reset knob into the mounting hole from the face of the cluster lens.

(3) Install the cluster lens onto the cluster housing.

Refer to Instrument Cluster Components - Cluster Lens in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures.

(4) Install the instrument cluster onto the instrument panel. Refer to Instrument Cluster in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures.

(5) Reconnect the battery negative cable.

CLUSTER HOOD AND MASK

(1) Align the hood and mask unit with the cluster housing.

(2) Press firmly and evenly on the hood and mask unit to install it onto the cluster housing.

(3) Work around the perimeter of the cluster housing to be certain that each of the latches that secure the hood and mask unit to the cluster housing is fully engaged.

(4) Install the cluster lens onto the cluster housing.

Refer to Instrument Cluster Components - Cluster Lens in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures.

(5) Install the instrument cluster onto the instrument panel. Refer to Instrument Cluster in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures.

(6) Reconnect the battery negative cable.

CLUSTER HOUSING REAR COVER

(1) Position the rear cover to the back of the cluster housing.

(2) Press firmly and evenly on the rear cover until each of the latches that secure the rear cover to the cluster housing is fully engaged.

(3) Install the instrument cluster onto the instrument panel. Refer to Instrument Cluster in the Removal and Installation section of this group for the procedures.
