It comes off from the front. Open the front passenger side door and remove the fuse panel access door on the right hand side of the dash. There`s 1 screw to remove frome the dash cover and then pull the cover off. It`s easiest to work the top out and then lift up and out. Then there are 4 screws that hold the instrument cluster in place, remove them and pull it out andf you`ll have access to the bulbs.

Once you do it you`ll find you can pull the ****** out in 5 or 10 minutes.

Speedometer stopped working

You probably need a new speedometer cable. It may be too old of a car to try and find one from a salvager. They periodically send the older cars to be crushed.
The cables have been known to break apart after many years of service. It is connected at the transmission and behind the instrument cluster. You have to pull the cluster out part way and reach behind to unclip the cable from the back of the speedometer housing.

Dash instruments go out 99 dodge caravan

The first thing to do is reach up (if possible) behind the cluster and make sure the plugs to it are fully inserted, push them in or remove and reinsert if possible to reach them. If that doesn't fix the problem the entire cluster must be removed and then sent out for repair to a shop that repair Chrysler electronics.

How do I remove dash enough to change bulbs in 2000 ford ranger?

First locate the screws hidden above the instrument cluster . If the truck has a tilt wheel shift it downward and put the vehicle in neutral if it has an automatic trans. The outer instrument cluster bezel will then bel loose at the top. Under the lower edge of the dash there are several hex head screws holding the plastic moldings in place. Remove all of them including the two holding the brake release handle. The dash face should then pull off. There are 4 hex head screws holding the cluster into the inner dash structure. Remove those and carefully pull the cluster out and turn it toward the left side. Reach behind the cluster and unplug the connectors. The bulbs are in removable black sockets which you will turn about 1/4 turn to remove. Remove and replace the bad bulbs and reverse the above process to reassemble.

It sounds like tach is wornout, but you'll need to remove the instrument cluster to replace it. You'll need to reach in behind the speedo from above, to remove the speedo cable, before it can come out. Change the LED while you have the cluster apart.
