alright i ended up finding out what to do, i reached up behind the panel i couldn't remove and on each side was a large knurled nut i had to undo by hand and it pops off. but now im at the back of the cluster and the cables won't come off, is there a certain way to pull them off..? what do i do? help please...?


edit:
nevermind.. agh, i finally got the cluster in i got out of a different bmw at a junk yard. and that one doesn't work either.. any suggestions?
