    Thanks but I found a site on line where I bought the service manual for $9.98 (paypal), and was able to download instantly. Got what I needed.

    Jose: It would be interesting to hear exactly what's involved in the replacement. If you have time to take some pictures and document the process here, along with any tips you might have, it would be helpful to others who encounter the same issue.

    I read through the procedure, and it looks tough. you start by removing console, the front pate kick panels, windshield garish, parts of instrument cluster. And thats just what I remember now. I'll take pictures and do some type of write up. With the leather dash and the sun. A few people might be having to do this.
