How To – Access The Fiero Gauges / Disassemble Gauge Pod

This article covers the process of getting the Fiero gauges out of the car. In doing so I removed the entire gauge pod from the vehicle, for ease of access to prevent damaging any components.

Tools:

1. 7mm driver

2. 5mm driver

3. 10mm driver

4. Torx driver,for interior screws

 

Preparation:

Removing the Gauge Pod

1. Remove the switch plates and disconnect any wiring.
