Chris, like everyone said, great job.
For the gear selector, there are 2 clips that hold it in the gauge cluster. I thought it was easier to remove it from there when I pulled the cluster from our donor '99.

How is it hard to folow? It goes step by step of the process.

I have found in some of these videos misinformation given in some of his how to videos.

it's step by step. But some can get lost through out the reading.

I used the one in the how to section to remove my cluster. Worked for me.

Chris tackles the cluster in a very basic way. Some people who watch his videos probably don't even own the tools yet.

The point being, it is a how to section, the more input the better,right? When I have a problem with my truck and searching for answers, I read it or view it all.

^this. Even though there is an how to section and it works just as good, some people learn or do things better by seeing than reading. It benefits both ways.

Few videos don't recall you said to just spray wd40 on it.
2 different videos on replacing suspension parts gave bad advise on removing parts.

I know this is a dead thread but it's a very good one for accessing the instrument cluster. Dan
