It shouldn't be that tight, you should be able to undo it with a pair of pliers or grips if your careful.

True, its not very tight at all. But even after you remove that nut, there is another clip that is holding it place. When i was removing the dash I didnt know it was there and i broke it in the process. And I honestly do not know how to get at it.

The wiring into the cluster are on keyed unique plugs, so it can't go back wrong. There may be a single wire that's not on a connector that you may have to cut and then repair via a splice later.

Sorry, I can't remember how it is held in. I thought it was only the nut.[|)]
