There will be a metal tab that you can feel right on bottom of where the cable attaches to the cluster, you will have to push that tab toward the cluster to release the cable. Some times that just won't work then you can disconnect it from the speed sensor if it has cruise control and slide just enough through the firewall to gain access to the back of the cluster. HTH

Best Answer

this vehicle is not equipped with cruise control


Then you have to unhook it from the tranny and unhook it from the holders to get enough slack.
