2003 CLK-320 Convertible - Instrument Cluster Removal

Hi all, I have 2003 CLK-320 convertible. I need to remove the instrument cluster to fix the Pixel issue on it.

I have Mercedes removal tool that I use on my Mercedes 2001 W210 E-320 instrument cluster to remove it.

On CLK-320, I don't see any room to insert the tool into to pull the Instrument cluster out. Is there any trick or some special way to pull Instrument cluster out?

Please any help will be appreciated.

burgca, thank you. I was able to remove the instrument cluster. I tried to put hard foam piece between the ribbon cable and the padding. It did not work, look like on W208, when pixel goes bad on ambient temperature, the connection of ribbon cable to board is quite far off and not touching.

Same method worked on W210 IC, but not on W208. I will look into other approaches or just send IC of W208 to professional services to fix it for $149.
