Re: Instrument panel noise
nothing mechanical in the cluster. you can pop the bezel off and 4 screws and 3 plugs and the cluster is in your hand. you could drive with it out. also most of the panels under the steeering wheel aere very simple to remove including the top and bottom cover. remove all that stuff might help isolate the noise. also there is a clocksping and other stuff under the steering wheel that do make noise when they go bad but usually a clicking noise though.
