    The speedo has 4 nuts on the back and goes out the back of the dash. THe oil and volt meter have two nuts on the back on a clamp that hold them in place. THese come out the front.

        The indicator lights have little tabs on them top and bottom that you need to press inward. You will probably break the lights because the plastic is old and brittle so just go ahead and order a new set from

        The knobs all seem to come off differently.

        The light switch comes off when you push a button on the switch that releases the entire stem and the fan and vent knobs have a tension clip just behind the knob but before the dash that has to be compressed while pulling out on the knob.

        Sorry, no pics of thie one but I have a pick of the tabs.
