How do I take apart the dash in a '99 Caravan?

1811 5
I had the transmission rebuilt and the repair shop did not seat the instrument cluster properly. The bottom of it is set back from the surround such that it is hard to work the odometer controls. Also, not the llights flicker occasionally. I do not want to go through the hassle of having the shop fix it, but I have never taken that much of the dash apart. What do I need to do to get the cluster straight?

It's really not that hard. You just remove the upper and lower plastic covers on the steering column first. Then you remove the plastic bezel around the instrument cluster. You should then see the screws holding the cluster to the dash. There are four of them. One in each corner. You man not even have to remove the steering column covers. I'm pretty sure that if you have a short Phillips head screwdriver, you can remove the instrument cluster bezel without doing that.

If you do have a leaky wheel cylinder, then I'd recommend replacing both, along with new shoes and all new hardware for both sides. Trust me, you'll be glad you did in the long run. I did that a few months ago on my 99 GC and it made a world of difference. No more locking brake on one side in my gravel driveway!
