I did all of my gauges in blue last summer. If you look at my profile, you will find pictures there. They are alot of work but well worth it. The green ones look like s*** imo. Any questions, just ask

their is a plastic black clip on both sides of the cable where it meets the cluster, actually it;s right their in your picture, push black pin in or out and the unit will pull out.

that's not the speedo cable. 95+ trucks do not have one. that is the gear indiacator piece. as 2001ford was saying, there should be two black tabs to push in and the whole piece will slide down. or you can follow the thin wire down and unloop it from the gear shift.
