O.K, so i spent 2 unsuccessful hours last night taking my dsh apart with the hope of changing my CEL so i can once again pull codes, and diagnose deeper problems. Unfortunately, according to chiltons, the only way to do this is to dissconnect the Air Bag, and loosen the steering column. It sounds expensive, has anyone ever had this done? what kind of dollar figure am i looking at?

thanks in advance,

The instrument cluster is easy to get out of the gen 1 outbacks, provided a tilt steering wheel is equipped. Other models I am not sure about.

Haynes sucks a little, chiltons sucks a whole bunch IMNSHO. The FSM is the only trustworthy source of information for any make of car.

What model car?

OOPs, 94 legacy gt. i got to where i could pull the instrument cluster towards be, but could not see to remove anything behind it...i guess i was supposed to remove the speedo cable and wiring harness, but didn't know how.

Legacy777 might know the details about your car, but it sounds like you have the right idea.
