took me half an hour to an hour and im pretty mechanically inclined. i got a little agitated halfway through cuz of all the crap you have to take off (or at least what i took off). not a hard install though.

under an hour, easy. even if you arent mechanically inclined, you should be able to manage. there isnt really any crazy wiring involved... its just ripping into the dash that takes time.

My first time it took me 2-3hrs, if you don't count taking it apart again a few days later to adjust the needles upward on thier posts so they wouldn't "
stick" against the overlays. I've lost count of how many times I've had my dash apart, but I haven't taken to cover off the gauges in the 03 since I first installed them (I took these gauges out of my 02 after it was declared totalled.)
