Like the topic says, I'm trying to get at the guage cluster battery. Any particular way the cluster is supposed to come apart? I suspect the battery is long gone because I have the telltale temp-needle-dance when I turn the car on. Is it a battery I can get commonly, like a CR2032? Or is it something special? I'd like to know before I go tearing into it.

And while I'm on the subject, none of my chimes, telltale lights, or service indicator want to work. I can occasionally get the Park Brake light to come on by wiggling the release handle, and the Oil Pressure/Battery lights come on when the car is started, but thats it. Isn't there supposed to be more, like the service indicators and door chimes and things. Odd thing is the interior lights work, but only on the driver's rear and passenger's front doors. The driver's door and the one diagonally across from it do not bring on the light.
