I'm a bit stumped in the process of putting my dash back together after replacing my temp gauge. In addition to having 2 more screws left over than I can count holes in the remaining 2 panels, I'm not sure exactly where this gets tucked back up in with the metal clip on it. I do have the little plastic u shaped bit that goes up in a hole under the steering wheel to secure some of the wiring, but I'm not sure how to get to where I can do that from here:



I don't suppose anyone has a picture of what this is supposed to look like all back together? Really wish I'd done some documenting of where I removed various screws and such from when I was taking everything apart, but I really didn't understand how thoroughly I was going to have to disassemble everything to get the actual gauge cluster out until it was way too late...

It goes at the base to the shift column near the column mounting bracket. I think I have a pic of it. If I still have it I will post in a few min

That little clip goes on the lip of the lower cover that goes in place below the column and the two extra screws are most likely the ones on top under the upper cover holding the steel plate coming off the gauge pod. Dan

I think I see what you mean about the clip now, I found a spot on that lower panel with marks that match the size of the clip. The 2 extra screws I have are ones with the wide washer, but the 2 going into the metal plate at the back of the gauge pod are there (those are larger than the ones I have left).

Like mentioned above, that connector clips onto the trim piece under the steering column. IIRC, the trim piece has a tab on it, where the clip attaches.

BTW, that trim piece attaches to the dash with 4 screws, 2 with small washers in the back, and 2 with bigger washers in front (just under the gauge panel).
