w201 dash cluster removal?

1987 190d (w201)...

I have both the original MB chassis service manual AND MitchellOD, neither are very clear as to how you remove the dash cluster.

Well? Anyone have any pointers?

The service manual mentions (well, half-a55ed illustrates) 5 clips that holds the cluster in place. How do you get to these clips? Does the cluster just pull ou (kinda like krazy clips) or do you have to get behind the cluster somehow to unsecure them?

Do you have to remove the entire dash? It sure does not look like you do from the pics in the service manual..

Do a search in the w201 forum, there are a couple of great diy's with pics.

And you just have to remove the vent on the left, and begin to pry it out where the clips are located. When it starts to come out, disconnect the spedo cable or you will stretch it and make the needle bounce. To make it easier, disconnect the spedo cable from the transmission too.
