Mustang Blue Instrument Panel Bulb Lenses (1967-1970) Installation Instructions

1. To start installing your new Mustang Scott Drake C4VY-10B870B8 Blue Instrument Panel Bulb Lenses, you'll first need to remove the original instrument cluster assembly. There are three screws across the top and two at the bottom. Also, remove the two plugs from the under dash wiring harness and the speedometer cable.

8. I had to loosen the speedometer and fuel gauges with a 3/8” wrench in order to remove the lenses behind them. It wasn’t necessary to completely remove the gauges.
