My instrument cluster (speedo, fuel, temp etc) has some condensation and what i assume is mould on the inside of the glass/plastic.

Is there any reasonable way of removing and cleaning this? Its kinda irritating and the area with the warning lamps are fogged up aswell and sometimes its hard to see them.

1. Disconnect battery cable.
2. Remove instrument panel cover from lower left hand side.
3. Disconnect flexible hose from below left side duct.
4. Disconnect speedometer cable from rear of cluster.
5. Remove 5 spring clips securing instrument cluster, then push cluster out from rear.
6. Disconnect all electrical connectors and the oil pressure gauge line from rear of cluster, then remove from vehicle.
7. Reverse procedure to install.

Not from inside the hood but in the drivers seat. You have to reach behind the dash and push the cluster out. The hardest part is un screwing the speedo cable if it is tight. Go in from the side vent or up from the floor. You can remove the lower part of the dash or knee board and panel above the brake and gas pedals. There is a lot of wires and metal braces in the way but if your hand can get up to the speedo cable, you can unscrew the ring that holds it in the cluster.
