Question about 2003 Honda Accord
Would like any assistance with replacing the factory instrument guage cluster with an aftermarket dayglo set ive purchased from e-bay. no instructions were promised so im not surprised, but id rather have the know how of someone who has done it, rather than attempt to fumble through, and messing something up myself

This is slightly tricky. Start by removing the trim
around the shifter, its friction fitted so it will pop off with gentle force. Then you
can remove the larger piece
of trim that surrounds the shifter and extends up to the cup holders, I found that prying from the cup
holder end seems to work best. Now you will be able to remove the trim that
runs down the side of the center consol
and includes the cup holders
and power plug, you undo the 2 screws near the shifters then pry it off down the
sides and pulls clear from the dash. Only then can you undo the bolts that hold
down the bottom of the
radio frame. From there it becomes alot
easier. Push on the frame where you just pulled the
bolts out of while prying gently at the radio consol. The whole thing will come out the factory
unit comes out easily then you can put your dash adapter (schoche makes a
decent kit) and aftermarket unit in.

I had a similar problem a few months ago. I changed the speedometer sensor as well as the instrument cluster with no result. Finally I decided to take out my ECU. As soon as I took it apart, I noticed a burnt node. Replaced the ECU and the speedo worked fine. You might try this if tinkering with your cluster doesn't work.

Same as 2 dr, or a stick.
There are bezel screws that hold the plastic trim (pointing up towards the windshield), you nee to remove these 2 screws. The bottom section is clipped in. Tilt the steering wheel down as far as it will go.
Once you have the bezel off, there are 4 screws holding the cluster to the dash. Remove them and gently pull the cluster forward. Reach around (expect to get scraped knuckles) and unclip the speedo cable, and two large multipin connectors. Don't force anything.
Getting the cluster out after this point is a test of your patience. It only seems to come out one particular way.
