Removing instrument cluster

I have an 1985 300D and need to change my speedo cable. I'm having trouble getting the instrument cluster out.

It is friction only. You can use hooks, or get from under and push it.
After pushing it partly you need to disconnect speedo cable, oil tubing and electrical.
Don't forget reconnect the oil tubing before starting the engine, or you will be for major cleanup.
