pretty simple, unscrew 4 bolts underneath the steering wheel to get the plastic cover off then take out the 4 bolts on the metal plate and LOOSEN the last one so that you can pull down the metal sheet. You then can take the cover off that is covering the speedometer and get at the cluster. hopefully this doesn't confuse you too much. ( lol) just google it.

^ good link, Bob.

Jeremy, make sure your cig lighter is operational. A lot of Fords the CEL and lighter/power outlet are on the same fuse.
